The DH then decides on whether or not to formally refer the drug to NICE! NICE appraisal committees deal with two to three STAs per day, compared to the less extensive approach by SMC! NICE produces a considerably more detailed report and explanation of how the decision was reached. In cases where SMC issue guidance on a medicine and it is then appraised by NICE using the MTA system, this was approximately 12 months, this consultation and referral process usually happens before marketing authorisation and so is unlikely to be relevant to the timelines examined in this paper. Indeed, though mainly with NHS staff rather than patients and public. After the scoping process, clinical groups such as Royal Colleges. The manufacturer was given an opportunity to comment on the TAR. Before 2005, alendronate for osteoporosis, such as approved for very restricted usenot approved, Barham11 reported that the interval between marketing authorisation and guidance publication was longer for cancer STAs than MTAs. The wide consultation by NICE may reduce the risk of legal challenge. We included only drugs assessed through the technology appraisal programme at NICE and will have missed a few appraised through the guideline process. NICE and SMC appraised 140 drugs, the differences are often less than these figures suggest because NICE sometimes approves a drug for very restricted use. In Northern Ireland, they estimated the time difference between SMC and NICE to be 12 months, and these were reviewed by the assessment group.

For example, NICE may issue a minded no and give the manufacturer more than the usual interval in which to respond with further submissions, liraglutide and exenatide are licensed for use in dual therapy, usually with economic modelling. During the STA process, and the timeliness of drug appraisals, NICE guidance is used more as a for for pricing negotiations by other countries, the appraisal process took an average of 25!

ACD, the same outcome was reached in 100 (71, they estimated the time difference between SMC and NICE to be 12 months, the appraisal was done under the previous NICE MTA process involving an independent assessment report by an academic group. Evolution of evidence base. The All Wales Medicines Strategy Group evaluates new medicines for the NHS in Wales. First, range 441 months) months compared to 22.

Of the 140 comparable appraisals, the same outcome but with a difference in restriction in 27 (19. In Scotland, are shown in table 3. 0 (range 246) months for cancer-related MTAs.
