HC Deb 02 November 1995 vol 265 c456W
Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what treatment is available through the national health service for patients with Anderson Fabry disease; at which NHS trusts treatment can be obtained; and if he will make a statement. [40921]

Mr. Sackville

Anderson Fabry disease is a rare inherited disorder of metabolism for which there is no known cure. Treatment of the various symptoms of the disease is a matter of clinical judgment and varies according to the individual case. The availability of services for such treatment is a matter for local determination.
