That this House celebrates the patient, clinical and economic benefits resulting from the use of medical technologies, as outlined in the Medical Technology Group's paper, Making the Economic Case for Medical Technology; regrets the low use of these technologies in the NHS, as compared with other industrialised countries; recognises the NHS financial reform measures outlined in the Government's Payment by Results paper, in particular, the introduction of Healthcare Resource Groups (HRGs) as a tool for categorising patient treatments into standard groups according to common diagnoses and medical procedures; supports the idea that HRGs should allow a more manageable way of allocating funding for specific types of medical conditions, but hopes that the new HRG system will be quick to react to the introduction of new and innovative medical technologies, thereby offering broad and rapid patient access to treatments which play an important role in facilitating patient choice.
