Charities such as Multiple Sclerosis Trust are receiving funding from Bayer. They are lobbying NICE to supply drugs such as Sativex which is marketed by Bayer. Many other Health Charities are doing likewise.
However much they require funding for nasty diseases they should declare when their lobbying for funds is linked to a commercial company supplying the drugs.
This is similar to the Charities lobbying for funds while receiving grants from the EU. If they ever do or say anything other than support the EU they would lose that funding. This really political bribery.
