Why was Gilenya not allowed in Scotland

Surely if Scotland is the worst for MS in the world, we should get priority on new drugs?  i'm sad if there's stuff out there and we can't get it.

Anyone know the reason?

scotland has its own medicine approval  company,usually if nice approve it scotland will follow,

 

I understand that Scotland turned it down as it doesn't offer value for money.. Sod patients wellbeing.

Yes, I read that too - seems that the Scottish NICE is following the stereotype of the grippy bas***d Scot.
