Alzheimer's Disease

Volume 455: debated on Tuesday 16 January 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland whether the drug Reminyl is available on the NHS prescribed list of medicines for all patients suffering from Alzheimer’s disease in Northern Ireland; and how many patients are being treated with the drug in Northern Ireland. (115559)

Reminyl is available on health service prescription in Northern Ireland following examination and recommendation by a consultant taking into account evidence based practice and the needs of the patient.

The number of patients being treated with Reminyl is not recorded centrally and is therefore not known.
