Are there any other methods to access treatments my clinician wishes to prescribe?

There are other ways to access a treatment your clinician feels will benefit you, but is not routinely available via the NHS:

  • Clinical trials
  • Early Access to Medicines Scheme (EAMS)
  • Compassionate use programmes
  • Expanded access programmes
  • Named patient supplies
  • Purchasing treatment privately

These are described in the following sections.
