To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what discussions he has had with the British Medical Association on the prescribing of salbutamol to treat congenital myasthenia.
4 September 2014
Ministers have had no such discussions.
Salbutamol is not licenced for the treatment of congenital myasthenia. Doctors can prescribe a medicine outside the terms of its licence if this best meets the clinical need of an individual patient and on condition that they retain full clinical responsibility for that patient.
