Arrhythmia - implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) (review): analysis of cost impact

This costing template and costing report are produced by NICE to provide an implementation tool assessing the estimated financial impact on the NHS of the implementation of the technology appraisal.

The report published focuses on the financial impact of key factors in the technology appraisal on implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) for the treatment of arrhythmias in England. The report has been prepared in consultation with the developers of the appraisal and has been approved for publication by the Institute. It should be noted that the cost and activity assessments in the reports are estimates based on a number of assumptions and provide an indication of the likely impact and are not absolute figures.

As part of this work, a template has been developed to provide health communities in England with the ability to assess the likely local impact of the principal recommendations in the guideline.

Please ensure that your level of macro security is set at medium or low so that the macros can be enabled when you open the spreadsheet.

The Institute would welcome feedback from users to inform the development of future templates. Please email your comments to costing@nice.org.uk .
