Teagan's cannabis oil had been confiscated at the airport after her mother Emma Appleby brought the three-month supply into the UK illegally from the Netherlands on 6 April.
On 3 April, BBC Newsnight reported that some medicines, including some for epilepsy, bipolar disorder and neuropathic pain, cannot be stockpiled.
This comes after the Health Secretary Matthew Hancock said in parliament that medical suppliers had been asked to stockpile an extra six-weeks’ worth of medicines. This is to ensure medicine supply continues in all Brexit scenarios.
This means there will be stricter legal controls over these medicines to prevent them from being misused, causing harm or being sourced illegally.
An hour-long programme will be aired on Channel 4 on Monday 28 January, following the story of a family trying to access medical cannabis.
Almost 9 in 10 Health Boards and Trusts in England and Wales do not enable mental health provision within epilepsy clinics. This is despite research showing that children with epilepsy are four times more likely to experience a mental health problem than their peers.
Epilepsy organisation Epilepsy Action has said it is disappointed with the lack of priority given to epilepsy in the NHS Long Term Plan.
The Long Term Plan was published on 7 January, detailing how the NHS intends to move healthcare forward over the next 10 years.
In a post, Epilepsy Action highlighted that while epilepsy is mentioned in the plan, it is not made a priority.
The government has said epilepsy medicines will not be included in plans to allow pharmacists to ration medicines in the case of a no-deal Brexit, the Sunday Times has reported.
In December, the government set out plans to avoid shortages of medicines, which it called a “serious shortage protocol”. This would be in the event that no Brexit deal is made and the UK leaves the EU without one.
