Appraisal Consultation Document (ACD)

The ACD sets out the Appraisal Committee’s provisional recommendations to NICE on how the technology should be used in the NHS in England.

It is the Appraisal Committee’s draft guidance on using a drug (or group of drugs) or treatment in the NHS (called technology appraisal guidance). The manufacturer and organisations who have been invited as consultees and commentators can comment on this draft guidance.

The ACD will include any restrictions in the event that a restrictive recommendation has been made by NICE.
