HSC have announced they are now in a position to formally commence the work necessary to roll out the first tranche of NICE TAs which significantly increase the range of drugs and treatments available to Bailiwick residents with chronic medical conditions. Please ask your GP or consultant at your next appointment if you are one of the thousands of patients who will benefit from the implementation of our new drug and treatment policy. HSC tell us that, “No request from a doctor for a NICE approved TA drug to be added to the White List has been declined since the States resolution was made.”
