Earl Howe now says NICE is essential
Having started a frenzy of speculation with his view that NICE will become redundant, Early Howe 'clarified' the situation in a speech at the ABPI on Wednesay (here). Whilst recognising that NICE's role will change, he recognised that appraisals are essential and would play a role in the VBP process. Nothing to worry about? Let's wait and see.
