Bureaucracy to the max and corruption over patient care, sadly.
As far as England is concerned, we don't even know if we're in Europe any more
and with current Gvt who have their fingers in big pies, well ......
It seems, it's down to individual hospitals whether they 'break the rules' to even monitor treatment on generics, and this has come a long, long way within a year thanks to Dr Freeman, Dr Andrew Hill and Greg Jeffereys at EASL , MonkMed, who do things properly and tirelessly and patient advocates like the people on here, having faith and getting cured. At least Drs are listening now, a giant step in the right direction and mainly down to medics, certainly not the powers that be and highly paid management.
I can't see Europe going for this in the near future, although I can imagine there are some in the Eu that would like to implement it, so I think there may be hope for the distant future. It would save the health authorities a fortune, improve the lives of patients enormously, as well as actually saving lives
but no doubt big pharma & business types would put pay to that currently.
But to all of the above, I salute you, you started something and it's awesome
A vision for future, maybe ? Ridding Europe and the world of Hepatitis C, Quite frankly, it's disgusting and immoral not to.
