Age of children who will be able to access the EAP for SMA Type 1 going forwards

07 August 2017

Following questions we have received about the NHS England interim policy announcement, we have clarified that, from now on going forwards (until we hear from NICE) children will have to be diagnosed by 7 months of age to be eligible. 

However, if you have a child who has already been diagnosed with SMA Type 1 who is older than this and not already on the EAP, they will be eligible for treatment if your medical team agrees it could potentially be beneficial.
