Patients still denied access to new drugs NICE approvals

Patients are still being denied access to NHS treatments despite winning approval byNICE, according to UK media reports

According UK media reports, patients are still being denied access to NHS treatments despite winning approval by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE).

A Daily Mail report says that the UK government has given Primary Care Trusts (PCT) permission to refuse patients treatments, including a new type of therapy for diabetics as well as special surgery for colon cancer.

Guidelines currently state that novel treatments must be available within three months once approved by the agency.

A new report by the Health Select Committee will recommend a review of the way new treatments are approved.
