6 Recommendations for further research

6.1 The Committee heard from the NHS commissioning expert that NHS England is intending to collect clinical data from people treated with the new generation of HCV treatments. The Committee agreed that such efforts should be supported so that clinical data collected in routine clinical practice can be used in any review of guidance on these treatments. It recommended that clinical data, including genotype and sustained virological response at 12 weeks, is collected for all people treated with sofosbuvir in the NHS.
