As a parent of a young person with life long intractable epilepsy, I am in the first part ever increasingly dismayed about the increasing wait for NHS consultant appointments in Northern Ireland. Now the wait is 18 months to two years between followups. Secondly, what are people view s on lobbying for legal prescription of CBD products. I would like to pursue this, but with no government here, what can be done?
