Contributing to a medicines evaluation: help for patients and carers
To help you participate in our medicines evaluations we have:
- A named public involvement adviser to support you throughout each evaluation.
- Monthly Zoom inductions for patient and carer organisations. Whether you already work with us, are new to working with us, or think you may have a medicine coming to NICE in future, you're welcome to join one of these sessions. We call them inductions, but they work equally well as ‘kick off’ meetings or refreshers. We’ll take you through the process, our support, and options to get involved and answer your questions. We can top up with further training and support. To find out more or to book a place contact us on 0161 870 3020 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- A set of guides.
Submitting evidence to a NICE medicines evaluation
You can provide evidence on behalf of your organisation using the submission template. In the guide below we have pulled together advice on gathering and presenting the information, as well as what to avoid. If you would like advice on preparing for a submission, or for us to read a draft of your submission, contact us on 0161 870 3020 or email email@example.com.
Please use the guide and template below if you are writing a submission following a period of managed access. If you are not sure whether to use this, please contact your public involvement adviser.
Information for patient experts
This document contains information for patient experts on how to prepare for the meeting and what to expect.
If you are a patient expert at a committee meeting, you have the opportunity to submit a personal statement before the meeting. This is so that you can tell the committee about your experience of the condition and treatments using our template for patient experts.
This guide explains how to use the Summary of Information for Patients (SIP) which is a written by the company in who are bringing the medicine to NICE for evaluation for use in the NHS. The SIP is a plain English version of their submission to NICE written specifically for patients participating in the NICE evaluation.
