NHS England and the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) are currently consulting on changes to the way that NICE appraises medicines for rare diseases that we believe could present a seismic shift in the way that rare disease patients access treatments in England. We held a webinar on Friday 2 December 2016 to discuss this with our members – below you can find the recording.
