English hospital reimbursement system

This online on-demand 70-minute seminar gives a comprehensive understanding of the hospital reimbursement landscape for medical devices in England. Available as pre-recorded webinar or full presentation in Acrobat PDF

England is one the most attractive markets for medical devices in Europe.

Large population, well-structured reimbursement processes and first-class research and treatment facilities make it the country of choice for market entry for medical device companies.

On the other side, market access in England is very much evidence-driven, which requires good level of clinical evidence for acceptance of novel technologies. Also, a complex reimbursement system (National Tariff Payment System) and funding framework (including commissioning by NHS England or Clinical Commissioning Groups) with a strong advisory role of National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) makes the market access environment difficult to understand and navigate in.

We built this seminar based on experience from dozens of market access projects in England, to help develop better understanding of the market access landscape in England and to inform better business decisions whether to go to this market or not and if yes, how to approach it.
