Re: olaparib (Lynparza) for primary breast cancer

Hi everyone, 

In the Policy and Campaigns team at Breast Cancer Now we're still looking to speak to people with experience of olaparib (also known as Lynparza) for their primary breast cancer to inform our work to help ensure this treatment can be made available to eligible patients on the NHS. 

If you would be happy to speak to me, please do get in touch by emailing policy@breastcancernow.org 

Many thanks,

Holly

olaparib (Lynparza) for primary breast cancer

Hi everyone, 

I work in the Policy and Campaigns team at Breast Cancer Now. 

As you may be aware the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is currently assessing olaparib (also known as Lynparza) to see whether it can be made available on the NHS for the adjuvant treatment of high-risk, HER2-negative, BRCA positive primary breast cancer. 

We're currently gathering evidence and insights to help inform our response to the assessment of this treatment. As part of this we would like to hear from anybody who has received the treatment, whether through the clinical trial or an early access scheme. 

If you are able to help, please complete this short form by 25th March https://breastcancernow.org/about-us/tell-us-your-story or email policy@breastcancernow.org

Your views will be shared with NICE anonymously. 

With best wishes,

Holly
