  Osteoporosis update Thursday 26 February 2004  
It was in December that Woman's Hour reported on the guidelines issued by the National Institute for Clinical Excellence which restricted the prescription on the NHS of some treatments for osteoporosis.

The National Osteoporosis Society said at the time it would set things back years and your response was furious - dozens of you wrote, called and e-mailed to protest. And now come reports of a U-turn.
Jackie Parrington who represents the National Osteoporosis Society joins Jenni to discuss the issues.
