9350 - NHS: Drugs (Answered)

Emily Thornberry
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, what discussions he has had with NHS England on recent guidance stating that NICE-recommended medicines will be funded from day 90 of publication.

George Freeman

No such discussions have taken place.

Commissioners are legally required to provide funding for treatments and drugs recommended in National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) technology appraisal guidance within three months of NICE’s final guidance.
