To ask Her Majesty’s Government, further to the Written Answer by Earl Howe on 24 June (WA 93), what assessment they have made of the length of time an evaluation under value-based pricing will take for cancer drugs previously considered but not recommended by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence.

We expect that the timescale for the value assessment process that the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) will apply to drugs under value-based pricing will be broadly similar to that for NICE’s existing single technology appraisal process. Details of the existing process are available on NICE’s website at:
