Our diagnostics assessment recommendations are prepared by an independent advisory committee called the diagnostics advisory committee (DAC).
Standing committee members are appointed for a 2 or 3 year term and specialist committee members are appointed for the specific topic under consideration and serve for the duration of that assessment.
Committee members are drawn from:
- the NHS
- patient and carer organisations
- the diagnostics industry.
Although the committee seeks the views of organisations representing health professionals, patients, carers, manufacturers and government, its advice is independent of any vested interests.
