The Institute is currently developing the scope for this appraisal. Following initial work it was clear that the remit of the referral from the Department of Health and Welsh Assembly Government should be reconsidered. It is anticipated there will be a 1 to 2 month extension to the appraisal timelines whilst the Department of Health, Welsh Assembly Government and Ministers consider proposals. As soon as a revised timeline is available it will be published on the Institutes website.

This appraisal originally formed part of the Institute's appraisal of the clinical and cost effectiveness of technologies for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. However, following the independent Appraisal Committee's meeting on Thursday 12 February at which it discussed the responses received during consultation on the draft recommendations in the original Appraisal Consultation Document (ACD), the Institute accepted the committee's recommendation to separate the appraisal into two parts, which will be published separately.
