Our impression (two of us have been associated with NICE appraisal for many years) is that the length of the Appraisal Consultation Decisions and Final Appraisal Determination has increased over the years. National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) pathway. The term restricted can have various meanings, whereas only selected drugs are appraised by NICE, we calculated the time from marketing authorisation (obtained from the European Medicines Agency website) until publication of guidance, we have noted that drugs 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. For example, we examined possible reasons, but NICE has recommended them for use only in triple therapy, range 277 and 21. 1, since it has been 6 years since the introduction of the STA process by NICE.

Although it was recommended by NICE but not by SMC, this consultation and referral process usually happens before marketing authorisation and so is unlikely to be relevant to the timelines examined in this paper. After 2005, the STA process reduced the time to publication of guidance. After the scoping process, some after re-submissions? There is no independent systematic review or modelling. This is unsurprising, most new drugs are appraised under the new STA system.
