More than 10,000 patients with serious medical conditions are losing out on access to 11 new medicines which are "stuck in a backlog for over a year" because of a failure of government to fund them, it emerged yesterday.

The new treatments are for cancer, colitis, migraine, short bowel syndrome and Parkinson's disease.
