NICE publishes process and methods guides for its Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme – 20 April 2011

“The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has published the process and methods guides for its Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme. This work programme focuses specifically on helping enable new medical technologies, or important modifications to existing ones, to be used more quickly and consistently in the NHS.
The process and methods guides explain how evaluations will work, and will be of particular interest to manufacturers considering notifying their device or diagnostic to the programme. The process is designed so that guidance is developed for the NHS in an open, credible, transparent and timely way allowing appropriate input from relevant stakeholders. NICE consulted on the draft guides during 2010, and received over 500 comments from a range of stakeholders including individuals and organisations within the NHS, the medical technologies industry, academia, patient organisations and the Department of Health. This substantial and valuable input has informed the guides’ development.”
