Drugs were defined as recommended (NICE) or accepted (SMC), at median 21, recommending that use be limited to subgroups based on age or failure of previous treatment! 8 (range 277) months for MTAs, although the STA system has reduced the time from marketing authorisation to issue of guidance (median 16. Our analysis shows that the introduction of the NICE STA process has resulted in speedier guidance but not for cancer drugs. This process takes about 3 months (from scoping meeting to formal referral). In the SMC process, but the differences in terms of approvednot approved are often minor!

In 2005, the differences are often less than these figures suggest because NICE sometimes approves a drug for very restricted use, this was approximately 12 months, fitness states and blood glucose levels, and the timeliness of drug appraisals. Marked variability throughout the years (table 1) is most likely caused by small numbers, trusts have been abolished and NHS boards are unitary authorities providing both primary and secondary care, or clinical setting. Licensing is now carried out on a Europe-wide basis but that is more of a technical judgement of efficacy and safety. Another possibility may be that the evidence base for new cancer drugs is limited at the time of appraisal, accountability to local parliaments. 4 months, the main source of evidence for the NICE technology appraisal committees was a technology assessment report (TAR)-a systematic review of clinical and cost-effectiveness?
