Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme

What is the Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme?

The Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme (MTEP) selects and evaluates new or innovative medical technologies (including devices and diagnostics). MTEP helps the NHS adopt efficient and cost effective medical devices and diagnostics more rapidly and consistently.

The types of products which might be evaluated are medical devices that deliver treatment such as those implanted during surgical procedures; technologies that give greater independence to patients; and diagnostic devices or tests used to detect or monitor medical conditions.

What we do

The Medical Technologies Advisory Committee (MTAC) has two separate functions.

  • to select medical devices and diagnostics for which NICE should produce guidance and then route the selected technology to the appropriate NICE guidance producing programme.
  • to develop guidance on technologies which is issued by NICE as Medical Technologies Guidance.

Notify a medical device or diagnostic to the programme

All medical technologies notified to NICE which meet the eligibility criteria will be considered by the NICE Medical Technologies Advisory Committee for guidance. NICE only considers technologies which are notified to it by a Sponsor. If you are interested in notifying a medical device or diagnostic test/technology to NICE please visit the notification page.
