CLOSED: Public consultation workshop on HTA codes of practice - London

Venue: 
Friends House, London

This consultation workshop was open to members of the public and those attending on behalf of organisations representing the public or patient groups. 

The event focused on code A - Principles and consent.

Codes of Practice and Standards Review

The HTA has undertaken a fundamental review of its codes of practice and standards. After consulting on the revised codes and standards from 1 September to 30 October 2015, the published codes and standards are available here and they have undergone a major review in April 2017.

These consultation workshops gave attendees an opportunity to ask HTA staff about the content of the codes and clarify their understanding of the revised codes and standards. The workshops also gave attendees the chance to discuss the codes and standards with other professionals.
