Market Access in the United Kingdom (UK) Agency

(England, Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland)

With one of the largest populations in Europe (approximately 66 million people) the United Kingdom (UK) is an important priority for Market Access for pharma, biotech and medtech firms. Recognized for its well-established healthcare system, the National Health Service (NHS), and HTA processes run by HTA bodies such as NICE, the UK provides universal coverage and broad access to healthcare services. Our agency Justin Stindt Consultants is specialized in facilitating Market Access in the United Kingdom and can help your company navigate UK Market Access. 

Market Access UK – Essential to access one of the largest EU markets for pharma, biotech and medtech firms

The decentralized nature of the UK healthcare system implies timelines for achieving reimbursement and formulary listing may vary. There are several HTA bodies, the best known being the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) responsible for England. For Scotland the SMC (Scottish Medicines Consortium) issues guidance, while for Wales the AWMSG (All Wales Medicines Strategy Group) performs HTA unless the NICE guideline is adopted.

NICE and SMC offer confidential scientific advice services that allow companies to seek early feedback on their development plans for medicines, medical devices, or diagnostics. This service aims to help companies design robust and relevant clinical trials and development programs, improving the chances of successful HTA submissions later on.

Understanding Cost-Effectiveness in UK Drug Market Access: QALY-based Assessments and Pricing Strategies”

Cost-effectiveness / Cost-utility is the key determinant in the UK pricing & reimbursement landscape and costly drugs usually enter the market through various commercial arrangements. Cost-utility assessments conducted in the UK are based on economic models which assess quality-adjusted life years (QALY) and cost. NICE now applies different cost-effectiveness thresholds based on the setting including a severity of disease modifier. For more information visit our P&R submissions in the UK.

Besides the standard HTA processes, the UK also provides funding opportunities for effective yet expensive drugs through the Cancer Drugs Fund (CDF). For more information visit our Pricing & Reimbursement pathways in the UK.
