Access to medical technologies in Wales - Consultation on terms of reference

Response to the consultation

Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The National Assembly for Wales’s Health and Social Care Committee has undertaken work on access to medical technologies in Wales.


The Committee gathered views on the scope of this inquiry including the terms of reference for this work, and on what aspects of accessing medical technologies they should focus their efforts. 


This was an opportunity to comment on the scope of the inquiry only, not to submit written evidence. The Committee issued a further call for more detailed written evidence once the terms of reference were agreed.


The Committee welcomed comments on:

  • the uptake of medical technology in Wales, and the possible barriers to effective new (non-drug) treatments being more accessible to patients;
  • current appraisal processes for new medical technologies;
  • the decision-making process in NHS Wales on funding new medical technologies/treatments.


The consultation has now closed.
