Abstract

A poster presentation on the Scottish medicines consortium. SMC advises NHS Scotland about the status of newly licensed medicines, new formulations of existing medicines and new indications for established products. An investigation was undertaken to identify how SMC has impacted on NHS board Area Drug and Therapeutics Committees (ADTCs) in their assessment of new medicines, and the views of key stakeholders (ADTCs, public partners and pharmaceutical industry).
