4178 - Clinical Priorities Advisory Group: Publications (Answered)

Greg Mulholland
To ask the Secretary of State for Health, who is notified of funding decisions by NHS England's Clinical Priorities Advisory Group before those decisions are published.

George Freeman

NHS England's Clinical Priorities Advisory Group is an advisory committee and does not make decisions.

Funding decisions on new treatments for rare diseases will be made at NHS England's Specialised Commissioning Committee which is taking place on 30 June.

The outcome of all funding decisions will be published on NHS England’s website, and the subject of a press release, as soon after the Specialised Commissioning Committee meeting as is practically possible.

In addition, meetings are being arranged between hon. Members who have an interest and NHS England staff, following the Specialised Commissioning Committee.
