NICE – Methods of Technology Appraisal Consultation

In spring 2013, the government announced in its response to the Health Select Committee report into NICE the ‘central role NICE will take in assessing the value of new medicines’. Following this announcement NICE has produced a set of proposals which will be used to create an addendum to the ‘Guide to the methods of Technology Appraisals’.

The proposals are based on terms of reference given to NICE by the Department of Health for what is referred to as ‘value based assessment’.

The proposals are now open for consultation. NICE would like to receive comments on the document from anyone who has an interest in the Technology Appraisal Programme. Comments can be made via the NICE webpage and the closing date for receipt of comments is 17:00 on Thursday 19 June 2014.

Consultation period: 27 March 2014 – 19 June 2014
