Patients should be top priority

NEWS that skin cancer medication Ipilimumab, known as 'ipi', will be made available by the HSE to Irish patients is welcome.

The fact that patients, already seriously ill, had to launch a public campaign to lobby politicians on the matter is unacceptable.

We may be living in times of austerity but saving citizens' lives should surely be a Government priority, above all else.
