As set out in the response to the Accelerated Access Review, the Accelerated Access Pathway was established with the purpose of getting those innovations that we believe will be truly transformative to patients more quickly. The pathway will open in April for product selection. Exact timing of when the first products will reach the National Health Service will depend on those products selected. The Pathway will be open to medicines, devices, diagnostics and digital products.
