Edwina Hart says 'all options open' as Nice loses powers
From the MS Trust
Health Minister Edwina Hart has said "all the options are on the table" for a Welsh replacement for the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Nice).
The UK government announced on Monday it was taking away Nice's ability to decide what drugs are available on the NHS.
Instead, groups of GPs will be charged with deciding what drugs should be paid for by the NHS.
