Gov to plan legal framework for Early Access to Medicine Scheme

The new legal framework will aim to improve legal certainty and reduce regulatory burdens

The UK government is reportedly planning to introduce a legal framework for the Early Access to Medicine Scheme (EAMS) and has now launched a consultation on it, with responses to be submitted by 17 September 2021.

The EAMS is one way through which a patient with a life threatening or seriously debilitating condition can gain access to a medicine before it has gained approval from the UK’s Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA).
