New summary documents help to explain SMC decisions to public

To help further improve public understanding of our work, we have launched a new summary document which will accompany every medicine decision.

The summaries, which were developed by the Public Involvement team in response to one of the recommendations in the Scottish Government’s access to new medicines review, will feature on each medicine page on the website from September 2018.

The aim of the summaries is to provide clear guidance to patient groups and the public about what our decisions mean for them.

To view the summary documents for this month’s medicine decisions, go to our medicines advice page and click on the medicine you're interested in.
