Labour is demanding justice for sodium valproate victims – Sharon Hodgson

Sharon Hodgson MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Minister, responding to the EU’s review into the safety of sodium valproate, said:

“Labour is demanding justice for the thousands of victims and their families of valproate in the UK.

“We now need a full public inquiry to investigate why this drug was prescribed to pregnant women for so long, and to ensure something like this never happens again.”
