That this House welcomes the confirmation by the Department of Health in Northern Ireland that it will provide access to medicines approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence for use through the Cancer Drugs Fund in England and reform the Individual Funding Request process; recognises the importance of swift implementation of these changes for Northern Ireland's cancer patients who may be awaiting treatment; and calls on the Department to implement the commitment immediately to allow cancer patients in Northern Ireland to have equity in access to cancer medicines available elsewhere in the UK.
