More NICE methods changes….

…on the back of their consultation reported in two posts in the HEDS blog last year (here and here).  The three key points:
  • Managed access if budget impact is over £20M in any of the first three years was approved.
  • Speedy appraisal and recommendations if the ICER looks to be under £10K.
  • The proposal to have a £100K threshold for (ultra?) orphan drugs got dropped.  In favour of a £300K threshold.  This is not a typo.
