On June 18th 2018 the Scottish Health Minister, Shona Robison, announced a new access pathway for ‘ultra-orphan medicines’ in Scotland – medicines that can treat very rare conditions affecting fewer than 1 in 50,000 people.
This new development follows on from Dr Brian Montgomery’s Review of Access to New Medicines, published in December 2016, which noted a low approval rate for medicines for very rare conditions.
To resolve this, the report recommended the development of an alternative assessment pathway for ultra-orphan medicines. If a treatment meets the new definition of an ultra-orphan medicine and the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC) consider it clinically effective, then it will be made available via NHS Scotland for at least three years while information on its effectiveness is gathered.
The new pathway is scheduled to commence on October 1st 2018.Read more
