Orkambi finally delivered for cystic fibrosis patients in Wales

Commenting on the Welsh Labour Government’s announcement that they’ve finally reached an agreement with US company Vertex for the supply of the Orkambi drug for cystic fibrosis patients in Wales, South Wales Central AM, Andrew RT Davies, said:

“After holding many meetings with cystic fibrosis patients and patient groups, I’m pleased the Welsh Labour Government has finally secured an agreement with regards to Orkambi for patients in Wales.

“Wales has unfortunately lagged behind other administrations in Great Britain getting to this point and this has been a source of frustration for some of my constituents.


“And it's also worth remembering this is a US firm delivering life-changing drugs for patients across the country, something which apparently repulses Jeremy Corbyn if you are to listen to his scaremongering stories and fake news agenda on the NHS.”
