Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on HIV & AIDS and MP for Finchley & Golders Green, Mike Freer, has said he is pleased that the Court of Appeal has ruled NHS England have the legal power to Commission PrEP.

Following the Court’s decision in May 2016, which ruled NHS England had the powers to fund PrEP, health bosses manoeuvred to block the decision through the Court of Appeal.
