Charity campaigns against NICE kidney cancer ruling

The National Kidney Federation (NKF) is to launch a campaign against NICE's decision to rule out the use of four new drugs for kidney cancer.

Last week NICE said that it would not be recommending the use of the drugs Sutent, Avastin, Nexavar and Torisel on the NHS because they were not cost-effective.

The NKF is now demanding an appeal in order to argue against the NICE decision.

The charity will be contacting their members and urging them to approach their MPs about appealing the NICE decision.
