Update on immunosuppressants and NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence)

Last year the British Kidney Patient Association worked with patients and clinicians in the kidney community to successfully influence NICE’s (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) decision to restrict availability of immunosuppressant drugs to some kidney transplant patients. We’re pleased that NICE are now looking at this issue again so that we can give clarity to kidney patients who were alarmed by the initial proposals; 2 of our Patient Advisory Group members attended a review meeting this week, with one of them being asked by NICE to be a patient expert on this issue. We will keep you posted on any developments in this area as and when they happen.
