Only one type of molecular diagnostic has been funded through the CDF since NHS England took over operational management of the Fund in April 2013. RAS (rat sarcoma) testing can be funded though the CDF as a temporary measure while work is currently underway to clarify legacy arrangements for how such tests are currently commissioned and ensure alignment with the National Tariff payment rules.
NHS England has advised that it is currently receiving approximately 350 notifications per month for RAS testing at an estimated cost of £70,000 per month.
