NICE: Breast cancer drug costing tens of thousands of pounds more than other treatments 'unaffordable' for NHS

A breast cancer treatment that can cost more than £90,000 per patient is not effective enough to justify the price the NHS is being asked to pay.

“This drug is already being funded through the special Cancer Drugs Fund. Our job is to recommend whether it should transfer into the NHS budget. We are very aware of the importance that people place on life-extending cancer drugs and a decision not to recommend a cancer treatment for routine NHS funding is never taken lightly. We apply as much flexibility as we can in approving new treatments, but the reality is that given its price and what it offers to patients, it will displace more health benefit which the NHS could achieve in other ways, than it will offer to patients with breast cancer.”
