NHS England announces provisional investment decisions for specialised services

NHS England has announced its decision for which new treatments and services it will make available to patients.

Policies were first grouped by CPAG into three categories of patient benefit, and then three categories of cost. This methodology allows for the proposals to be split into five levels of cost/benefit. Policies with the greatest clinical benefit and lowest cost attracted the highest priority recommendation (level 1), while those with lowest clinical benefit and high cost attracted the lowest (level 5).

The full CPAG procedure can be found here.
