star this property answer text <p>Earlier and faster diagnosis is key to improving survival rates and NHS England is investing over £200 million over the next two years in cancer services to encourage local areas to find new and innovative ways to diagnose cancer earlier, improve the care for those living with cancer and ensure each cancer patient gets the right care for them. The Government has also committed £130 million for new technology and equipment to ensure patients have access to the best and latest radiotherapy treatment.</p><p> </p><p>Survival rates from cancer in England are at a record high, and since 2010 rates of survival from cancer have increased year-on-year. The decrease in cancer deaths means that around 7,000 people are alive today who would not have been had things stayed the same.

star this property answer text <p>In July 2016, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the independent body that develops guidance on drugs and treatments for clinical and cost effectiveness for the National Health Service in England, was unable to recommend Orkambi as a cost effective use of NHS resources. NICE concluded that, although clinically significant for managing cystic fibrosis, the longer term outcomes and benefits were not sufficient to justify its considerable costs. Orkambi is not therefore routinely available to NHS patients with cystic fibrosis.</p><p> </p><p>Since then there has been a constructive dialogue underway between the company, NHS England and NICE, including discussion hosted through NICE’s confidential ‘Office for Market Access’, although NICE is yet to receive any fresh proposals from Vertex, the company that manufactures Orkambi. Both NHS England and NICE have been consistent in advice to Vertex, that progress can only be made by working through NICE’s appraisal processes and the existing commercial framework.</p><p> </p><p>Any funding decisions in the absence of positive NICE technology appraisal guidance should be made by NHS commissioners based on an assessment of the available evidence and on the basis of an individual patient’s clinical circumstances.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p>
