The new technology appraisal committee will allow NICE up to 42 treatments a year. It will also allow NICE to speed up reviews of existing appraisals.

The institute has also announced that it is making changes to its technology appraisals programme and setting up a fellows and scholars programme.

Manufacturers will now be invited to attend technology appraisal committee discussions and be given a debriefing session at the end of the appraisal.

The new fellows and scholars programme will allow NHS public health and clinical professionals in England to work with NICE. Staff will be able to undertake projects and work with the institute to improve the quality of care within local communities, NICE said.
