Abstract

The Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) provides advice to the National Health Service (NHS) in Scotland about the comparative clinical and cost-effectiveness of all newly licensed medicines, new formulations of existing medicines and new indications for established products. SMC advice is conveyed to prescribers th rough the Detailed Advice Document (DAD), which is available on the SMC website and is disseminated to Area Drug and Therapeutics Committees (ADTCs) across Scotland. Since 2005, SMC has also provided a horizon scanning function and, through the Forward Look report, provides early intelligence to NHS Scotland on new medicines in development.
