Humira use within NHS under threat (NICE)

I've had an email through from NACC today.
"In the draft guidance, NICE does not consider these treatments to be a cost-effective use of NHS resources. - See more at:
http://www.crohnsandcolitis.org.uk/w...5I87GJ,ACBNK,1

I think its well worth anyone whose had some degree of success with Humira to let NICE know here.
http://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/inde...7/consultation.

Although it doesn't necessarily mention CD I would suggest if they stop using it for Colitis then the next stop will be probably be a stoppage on using it for CD.
