Can I get an Intravenous vitamin C injections on the NHS as I have cancer?

Hi,

I am sorry to hear about your cancer diagnosis.

As per the information available to me NHS does not consider cancer as a valid indication for cancer therapy.

You need to discuss this with your oncology team, but I do not think that NHS will allow you do have this therapy unless there is robust evidence that it works (there is not enough evidence to see that this works)
