- New Medicines Group (NMG)
NMG is a subgroup of the All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG). Up to ten NMG meetings are scheduled per year, which are held in private. NMG considers the clinical and cost-effectiveness of a medicine, along with written evidence from the pharmaceutical company, clinical experts in the field and relevant patient organisation(s) / support group(s) / patient(s) / patient carer(s). NMG makes a preliminary recommendation to AWMSG in relation to each medicine undergoing appraisal.
