The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) make recommendations on whether health technologies should be publically-reimbursed in England/Wales and Scotland, respectively, based on their clinical- and cost-effectiveness. Recently, both SMC and NICE have implemented divergent reforms to their appraisal processes including the NICE reformation of the Cancer Drugs Fund and the SMC Patient and Clinician Engagement (PACE) process. This research compares outcomes of NICE and SMC appraisals of oncology drugs over time.
