Surgery: Technology

Volume 502: debated on Monday 14 December 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Health whether he plans to refer the CyberKnife robotic radiosurgery system to the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence for evaluation. (305392)

We have no such plans. Stakeholders can submit topic suggestions for National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidance through the NICE website at:

We understand that the National Radiotherapy Implementation Group is considering whether it would be helpful to develop guidance for the national health service on the use of stereotactic radiotherapy more generally.
