Commenting on the high court ruling that NHS England can fund the pre-exposure prophylaxis (Prep) drug, Liberal Democrat Health Spokesperson Norman Lamb said:

"The Liberal Democrats warmly welcome the Court's decision, which is a landmark moment in the fight against HIV. PrEP is a revolutionary treatment which has the potential to save thousands of lives, and it is absolutely right that this should be funded by NHS England.

"I am now urging the Government and NHS England to work together to ensure that PrEP is made available to all individuals at the highest risk of infection without any further delay."
