Changes to access to medicines in Scotland

2016 |

In January 2016, the Scottish Government asked Dr Brian Montgomery to take forward an independent review of the assessment of new medicines in Scotland. He was asked to consider the impact of changes to the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) process for assessing medicines in 2014 and the wider system for patient access to newly licensed medicines.

The report was published on Wednesday 14th December 2016 and MAP’s briefing provides further detail on the proposed changes and their potential impact.
