NICE gives appraisals on the use of new and existing medicines
and treatments within the NHS in England and Wales, such as:
Please follow the A-Z links to the left (technically appraised
drugs are listed by condition, and inclusion in the list indicates
that these are provided by the Trust).
NICE TA stands for 'NICE Technical Appraisal' - one of the types
of guidance developed and published by NICE.
NICE TAs provide guidance for NHS organisations on treatments
(including medication) for specific conditions.
Each NHS organisation must be able to show that they provide all
treatments as detailed in NICE TAs.
NICE TA treatment will be made available to all patients who fit
the appropriate criteria.
If you would like to know whether you are eligible for treatment
with a NICE TA drug, this should be discussed in the first instance
with the clinician co-ordinating your care.
The medicines helpline can provide you with information on any
aspect of your medication:
