This topic was considered by the diagnostics advisory committee, which is a standing advisory committee of NICE.
Committee members are asked to declare any interests in the test to be assessed. If it is considered there is a conflict of interest, the member is excluded from participating further in that assessment.
The minutes of each committee meeting, which include the names of the members who attended and their declarations of interests, are posted on the NICE website.
