Answered on

20 July 2018

We are informed by NHS England that at the last meeting on 4 July, it was agreed that both parties would take time to reflect before a further meeting was arranged. NHS England has subsequently made a substantially increased proposal to Vertex and has offered to meet to discuss and clarify any aspects as required by the company.
