The meeting dates for the Clinical Advisory Group meetings have been released. Please see below.
The overwhelming majority of applications are usually considered at the second meeting. While this does not generally pose a problem for straight forward applications, more complex applications may have more chance of success if they are able to considered at the first meeting. This includes applications which may require a new group and/or new benefit, or else are considered ‘novel’ in some respect. These applications may need to be considered by the Health Economics Subcommittee. At times additional information may be requested by the Clinical Assessment Group and may need to be considered at a second meeting.
As inconvenient as it is submitting applications in early January you may wish to consider beginning complex applications now.
