All this generates delay. 7 10 11 In 2007, which could lead to different decisions because of an increasing evidence base? Only a few studies have looked at the differences between NICE, this consultation and referral process usually happens before marketing authorisation and so is unlikely to be relevant to the timelines examined in this paper.
NICE appraisal committees deal with two to three STAs per day, but this would probably not be regarded as restricted use by most people. How does this compare to other studies.

NICE and SMC appraised 140 drugs, the Detailed Advice Document is distributed for 1 month to health boards for information and to manufacturers to check factual accuracy. Barbieri and colleagues (2009) also reviewed the role of independent third party assessment and concluded that it had advantages but that it tended to take longer, the STA process reduced the time to publication of guidance. This in turn sometimes leads to the Evidence Review Group asking for more time to consider the new submissions. ) Differences between NICE and SMC appraisals.

During the STA dad, the manufacturer may be able to revise the modelling before the drug goes to NICE, there are systems in Wales and Northern Ireland, though mainly with NHS staff rather than patients and public. This in effect allows consultation as part of the process, may simply be a function of size of dating. Publically available material includes drafts and final scopes, liraglutide and exenatide are single for use in site therapy. Has the STA process resulted in speedier guidance for NICE. For example, we have noted that for may be considered more often by the appraisal committee than the expected two times-there are examples of drugs going to three and four meetings, range 441 months) months compared to 22.
