Scottish Mother battling to secure life-saving cannabis medication calls on new UK health minister to take action

A mum battling to have life-saving cannabis oil provided and funded by the NHS is calling on the new health minister to act.

Lisa Quarrell, from East Kilbride, has tirelessly campaigned to secure a NHS prescription for Bedrolite for son Cole who suffers from a rare form of epilepsy.

Eight-year-old Cole was diagnosed with a form of drug resistant focal epilepsy when he was just three-months-old.

Now his mother has written to Humza Yousaf asking him to reconsider the government’s stance on providing the life-saving drug.

Lisa told Lanarkshire Live : “I’m hoping that a change in minister can only be positive.

“Previously it was always ‘we won’t do it’ or ‘we can’t do it’ – never ‘let me see what I can do for you’.

“There was no relationship there.”

Lisa previously highlighted an NHS endowment fund which she believes could pay for Cole’s vital medication.
