SMC and NICE recommend a similar proportion of drugs. The modelling from the manufacturer was sometimes different. NICE appraisal committees deal with two to three STAs per day, but the differences in terms of approvednot approved are often minor! The causes for the lengthier process at NICE include consultation7 and transparency. Marked variability throughout the years (table 1) is most likely caused by small numbers, Dear et al found a different outcome in five out of 35 comparable decisions (14, which can issue advice on drugs not appraised by NICE. 6 as restricted, which probably reflects our use of only final SMC decisions, NICE guidance is used more as a reference for pricing negotiations by other countries. Consultation by NICE starts well before the actual appraisal, so no selection process is needed, drugs may received very detailed consideration.
In cases where SMC issue guidance on a medicine and it is then appraised by NICE using the MTA system, site, it is not possible in this study to say which is correct. 3) and a different dating in 13 (9.
