    "The Appeal Court has ruled an NHS advisory body should have been more transparent in the way it made decisions over Alzheimer's drugs."

    doh!

    Looks like NICE have been told that they shouldn't have done it but are not being forced to make the drugs freely available again.

    A very expensive slap on the wrist unless I am mistaken? Hopefully it may give some strength to get NICE to actually review and reverse the decision in the future. Oh no it won't!

    The headline 'Alzheimer's drugs appeal victory' is a little misleading in my opinion.



    Edited to add: Apologies, Sandy already picked this up and it has been posted in this thread within the research area.

    Hi Craig,

    This is brilliant news and it will give a lot of people more hope for the future.

    Although it may take more time to sort out and finalise, I think it is a very positive step forward.

    We will all wait to see what happens now.


    Best Wishes

    Ken
