The Minister for Health is being urged to make a decision sooner rather than later on providing access to a drug, which is used to treat advanced Parkinson's Disease.

Mayo Sinn Fein Senator Rose Conway-Walsh says certain patients were receiving Duodopa through an access programme provided by the company which manufactures the medicine, but that route is no longer available to patients.

Senator Conway-Walsh says Duodopa is available to patients in Britain, and should also be provided here.

She's calling on the Health Minister Simon Harris to at last make it known when he intends to make a final decision on it.
