The Clinical Evaluation Team is not seeking to establish a set of standards for products, nor does it purport to make any recommendations for the National Health Service to use (or not use) particular products. Suppliers are to be given the opportunity to review the Clinical Evaluation Team’s reviews for their product(s) at least 72 hours in advance of publication so that any factual and material errors can be rectified. Any concerns expressed will be given appropriate consideration.
