NHS England has today launched a 30-day consultation on a proposed method to support decision-making on relative prioritisation in specialised commissioning.
Each year, a significant number of proposals are put to NHS England for investment in new drugs, medical devices or interventions for use by specialised services in England. NHS England has to make difficult decisions on behalf of tax-payers about how to prioritise the funding that is available for those new investments each year. In the response to the previous consultation Investing in Specialised Services, it was described that a transparent method would be developed that can be used to aid decision-making on relative prioritisation. We are now seeking views on the proposed method.
The consultation will run until 11 May 2016 (11:59pm). Views will be collected via the online survey. A number of events will be held to support consultation. They are:
