According to new research by Pancreatic Cancer UK, half of all people diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in the UK are not being prescribed inexpensive yet essential tablets without which they cannot digest food. This means they are less able to tolerate treatment and also puts them at risk of starvation.

In this episode Charlotte chats with Danni Manzer from Pancreatic Cancer UK about their new campaign called Transform Lives: Prescribe. They are calling on the NHS to set national targets for prescribing PERT tablets to ensure they are given to everyone who needs them at the point of diagnosis.
