The provision of Immunosuppressant drugs – LATEST BREAKING NEWS" 

As you will know NICE have put forward proposals to dramatically reduce the number of immunosuppressant drugs available to clinicians looking after transplanted patients.  This is seen by the NKF as short sighted, foolhardy and likely to result in grafts being lost unnecessarily.  NKF believes it is merely a cost cutting exercise. NKF has fought this proposal for nearly one year, and has had questions asked of Ministers in the House of Commons.  It has also entered submissions to NICE arguing for a re-think.  So far this has fallen on deaf ears, however when NKF put forward a case for an APPEAL against this decision that need for an APPEAL hearing was granted.  The APPEAL hearing took place in Manchester on 30th March and the NKF was present in force and argued strongly and passionately for a re-think and a reversal of this damaging decision.  NKF now awaits the decision – and will inform you immediately it is known.
