UIN 128020, tabled on 19 February 2018

The published guidance about the specialised commissioning clinical prioritisation process is published on the NHS England website. This can be found here at:

Where a product is already in scope of a framework tender process run by the commercial medicines unit instructions on offer submissions are provided via the standard supplier portal as part of the tender process in the usual way. No general guidance has been issued to manufacturers.
