Views from clinical experts are an integral part of our health technology assessments. Clinical experts set the clinical scene and state where they think a new medicine would sit within current therapy in NHS Wales.
We usually request clinical expert nominations through professional societies, clinical networks or medicines and therapeutics committees. AWTTC invites clinical experts to submit their views in a questionnaire. Nominated clinical experts are asked to fill in the questionnaire and declaration of interest form (attached to the questionnaire). Completed questionnaires are shared with committee members to inform decision making. These questionnaires are treated as confidential and are not uploaded to our website.
If you haven't received a request from us but would like to submit your expert opinion on one of the medicines we're currently appraising, we would welcome your contribution. Please contact us so we can tell you how to do this.
