NHS England consulted, during October 2014, on proposed changes to the Cancer Drugs Fund (CDF) process to allow a re-evaluation of drugs/indications on the national Cancer Drugs Fund List and the incorporation of an evaluation of a drug’s cost into the CDF prioritisation process.

We understand that NHS England does not plan to undertake any further consultation on the most recent decisions of the CDF panel which were announced on 12 January 2015.
