NICE decision-making needs scrutiny

19th December 2008

The Royal College of Nursing has said that there needs to be a proper debate on changes to the NHS's approach to resource allocation.

The RCN said that it agrees that the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) should place more value on medicines that extend life or treat terminal conditions. The views have been set out in the college’s response to NICE's consultation on appraising end-of-life medicines where it says that more debate is required on factors important to patients in making resource allocation decisions.
