The criteria for accessing new cancer drugs in Northern Ireland is currently under review. Your cancer specialist should be aware of what drugs are available and funded.
Cancer drugs may be available under different circumstances, including:
If NICE has recommended that a drug should not be used within the NHS, it is unlikely to be funded in Northern Ireland. In exceptional circumstances, drugs may be funded on an individual basis where it has been agreed by the trust. Patients who feel they have exceptional circumstances should discuss this with their cancer specialist.
