Scots also want Prep

Calls are being made to get Prep, a drug that prevents HIV infection in people at high risk of the virus, available on the NHS in Scotland.

In England, the NHS had previously said that local authorities should provide Prep because they are responsible for preventative health. This week the Court of Appeal ruled that preventive health falls within the remit of the NHS.

An estimated 14,000 people would be eligible for the drug.
