Contribution to the Scottish Medicines Consortium’s (SMC) consultation of the use of Benlysta (belimumab) in SLE

Benlysta (belimumab) is due to be discussed by the SMC and a decision made for its use by certain SLE patients in Scotland. LUPUS UK has recently produced a report which it has submitted as evidence to the SMC as a Patient Group Partner. The SMC committee will meet on 4th April 2017 to discuss Benlysta and the decision will be made publicly available approximately five weeks later.
