Study looks at variation in uptake of NICE recommended medicines

This IMS Health study highlights a number of different factors which help to explain variations in uptake of NICE medicines.

The extent of variation in the uptake of NICE recommended medicines across the NHS in England has been described before. The reasons for such variations are less well understood. With the encouragement of the Metrics Oversight Group, a joint Department of Health, industry and NHS group, IMS Health conducted a qualitative study during the summer and autumn of 2012 to help investigate the reasons for variation.
