In spring 2013, the government announced in its response to the Health Select Committee report into NICE the ‘central role NICE will take in assessing the value of new medicines'. Following this announcement NICE has produced a set of proposals which will be used to create an addendum to the ‘Guide to the methods of Technology Appraisals'.

The proposals are based on terms of reference given to NICE by the Department of Health for what is referred to as ‘value based assessment'.

The proposals were consulted on from 27 March 2014 - 20 June 2014.

Note: this document does not constitute the Institute's formal guidance on the method of Technology Appraisals. The proposals are preliminary and may change after consultation.
