Submission form for consultation on paediatric cancer treatments in New Zealand
Feedback on Rule 8.1b of the Pharmaceutical Schedule
Te Pātaka Whaioranga – Pharmac is exploring whether special measures are needed to access paediatric cancer treatments that aren’t on the Pharmaceutical Schedule and, if so, whether the current approach (rule 8.1b) is appropriate. To do this we need to better understand the difference that rule 8.1b is making to the lives of children with cancer, their family and whānau, and the people who are working hard to support them.
