The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has confirmed that appraisals of cancer technologies started prior to 1 April 2016 will be considered using the updated NICE methods and processes which came into effect on 1 April 2016. Companies whose technologies fall under this scenario have been offered the opportunity to make a case for consideration within the Cancer Drugs Fund.
