star this property answer text <p>The drug cost to the National Health Service for a one year supply of Apomorphine for a patient with Parkinson's Disease is estimated to be in the region of £5,300 and £9,000, based on the usual daily dose of 3 – 30mg. However, the maximum daily is 100mg, so the annual cost for some patient’s treatment may be higher.</p><p>We have no estimate of the cost of manufacture. We are not aware of any particular issues relating to the manufacture of this drug. Pharmaceutical companies participate in either the voluntary pharmaceutical price regulation scheme (PPRS) or the statutory medicines price regulation scheme, both of which regulate the cost of medicines to the NHS. Products covered by the statutory scheme are subject to a 15% cut to their list price. Companies in the PPRS pay a percentage of sales to the Government when growth in NHS spending on medicines exceeds an agreed level. NHS purchasers may also negotiate discounts with pharmaceutical companies in addition to national price regulation.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>No central assessment has been made of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) clinical services established between 2004 and 2006. The commissioning of services for people with CFS/ME is a local matter, and the management of patients within such services is the responsibility of the commissioners, providers and clinicians responsible for their care. Clinical commissioning groups have a duty to exercise their functions effectively, efficiently and economically</p><p> </p><p>Since its publication in 2007, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline on the management of CFS/ME in adults and children, which set outs best practice on the care, treatment and support of people with the condition, has supported the local National Health Service in delivering services for people with the condition. The guidance recognises the challenges in managing a condition for which there is no definitive diagnostic test, no clear understanding of the causes and process of disease and no cure. The guidance is also clear that there is no one form of treatment to suit every patient and that treatment and care should take into account the personal needs and preferences of the patient. NICE is currently reviewing the guidance to ensure it reflects the latest available evidence and a decision regarding this matter is expected shortly.</p><p><br></p>
