A Mayo Senator is calling on the Health Minister to intervene, as patients suffering chronic pain can no longer access the pain relief drug Versatis on their medical card.

This affects about 25,000 people in total, including a large number of people in Co Mayo, according to Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh.

She says patients who are in chronic pain caused by arthritis and other conditions have been informed that the HSE will no longer cover the cost of these pain relief patches, and while it’s a matter for the HSE, the Erris-based Senator believes the Health Minister Simon Harris should intervene on humanitarian grounds.
