£80m New Treatments fund for Welsh patients

The Welsh Government has announced an £80m New Treatments fund. The Welsh Liberal Democrats have been calling for a similar fund for a number of years - securing the Health Technologies Fund in the last Assembly term - and the news will be a welcome boost for Welsh patients.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) and the All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG) provide cost benefit analysis of new drugs and treatments. The money will help ensure Welsh health boards make NICE and AWMSG approved medicines available faster and more consistently across Wales.
