As set out in the response to the Accelerated Access Response published in November 2017, the pathway will be developed and owned by the newly created Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC), a partnership between the National Health Service, industry, and clinical and patient representatives. The AAC met for the first time on 31 January and it will be that group’s responsibility to determine the criteria for the pathway. We anticipate that the AAC will publish further details on the process and criteria for the pathway ahead of the pathway opening in April 2018.
