What you and your doctor can do if a particular drug isn't readily available
To begin with, it's important to talk to your cancer specialist. You can then both decide whether it really is the best treatment for you.
Choosing the best treatment will depend on a number of factors, such as:
the type and stage of cancer you have
any other treatments you've had
whether there are any other treatments that might be suitable
what the side effects of this particular treatment are likely to be.
If you decide to apply to your local health body for a drug or treatment, you'll need to follow the procedures they set out. Please click on your region below for more information.
