Advice

Following a full submission.

Nebivolol (Nebilet®) is not recommended for use within NHS Scotland for the treatment of stable mild and moderate chronic heart failure (CHF) in addition to standard therapies in elderly patients ≥70 years. Nebivolol, added to standard therapy, was associated with improved left ventricular function and a reduction in a composite endpoint combining all cause mortality and cardiovascular hospitalisation rates in elderly patients with chronic heart failure.There is no comparison with other beta-adrenoceptor blockers.

Cost effectiveness relative to other beta-adrenoceptor blockers in common use in chronic heart failure has not been demonstrated.
