Update statement: Coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

In light of the current COVID-19 outbreak, we have been reviewing the meetings held to support Health Technology Wales (HTW) appraisal and Guidance processes.

To release front-line staff and avoid distracting the NHS in this time of unprecedented pressure, HTW has suspended our Appraisal Panel meetings and publication of new national Guidance until further notice.

HTW will continue our evidence appraisal work, ready to formulate national Guidance when appropriate. We will also liaise with other UK health technology assessment (HTA) partners to explore ways that we can assist the UK care sector and wider research community with response to COVID-19.
