Appraisal Committees are independent advisory bodies responsible for making recommendations to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) on the clinical and cost effectiveness of treatments for use in the National Health Service.
NICE’s Guide to the Methods of Technology Appraisal is published at:
www.nice.org.uk/article/PMG9/chapter/Foreword and describes how its Appraisal Committees reach decisions on treatments. It provides details of the criteria that need to be met in order to apply greater flexibility in the appraisal of life-extending drugs for patients at the end of their lives.
