Genetic Therapy payment model

Genetic Therapy payment model

There are people in Scotland currently taking part in human trials of gene therapy treatments. If proven safe and effective, these treatments offer the prospect of life-long improvements in patient quality of life. Current systems for evaluating cost effectiveness of treatment usually look about 5 years ahead and are ill suited to assessing these new treatments. The Scottish Government will need a new payment model to make sure NHS Scotland patients have access to these cutting edge medical advances if they want them.
