The Patient Groups (PAGs) are jointly collating questions about the scheme and will be asking Roche to provide answers as quickly as possible. Questions, similar to the range of those asked about the Compassionate Use Programme, will include:

  • Details of eligibility criteria
  • How people are referred to the scheme
  • What happens now to the Compassionate Use Programme (CUP)

If you have a question, please send it by Email or Facebook asap to one of the PAGs to forward.
