Medicines are a vital part of modern health care. The question of how to provide patients with access to innovative medicines, in a way that the NHS can afford, has been discussed by policy-makers, politicians and industry for many years.
In 2018, The King’s Fund released a policy report discussing some of the key issues, but the situation is evolving and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is currently reviewing how it appraises new medicines.
This free online event will explore the current medicines landscape and highlight some of the key challenges to patients accessing medicines in England. The discussion will include patient, industry and system perspectives on the medicines access process and the audience will be invited to send in their own questions to the panel beforehand.
Ahead of the event, send your question to the panel by visiting the Slido page here.
Please submit questions by 12.00pm on Wednesday 10 June for the chance to have your question featured in the discussion. Popular questions submitted during the broadcast on Thursday 18 June will be answered and shared on the event page afterwards.
