Novelist Terry Pratchett has criticised the NHS for failing to provide the drugs for Alzheimer's patients, while supplying Viagra for free.
The bestselling author, who was diagnosed with the early-onset form of the disease last December, has questioned why he and other sufferers are denied free access to the drug Aricept.
Aricept can slow the progress of the disease, and only costs £2.50 a day, but as there are 400,000 Alzheimer's sufferers in the UK, the NHS (National Health Service) has ruled out using it in the mild stages of the disease everywhere except Scotland.
It's enough to make one want to be.
