We have a decision! It has taken almost 7 months, but NICE have decided that the appeal should be upheald. Not for the whole of the Dupuytren's community, they still prefer patients to have PNF but for those who are not suitable we can argue the case again. https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/GID-TAG364/documents/appeal-decision So back to appraisal it is.
Anyone who wants to know what the decision was based on, this document gives the arguments and reasoning. And for someone interested in the whole process: the documents can be found here: https://www.nice.org.uk/guidance/indevelopment/gid-tag364/documents
On another note the Pulvertaft Hand Centre in Derby would like to know what patients feel about splinting, especially after PNF. https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/splintingfordupuytrens It is a short survey, so won't take much of your time! Go ahead and do it.
The Peyronie's campaign has reached a lot of people and countries, and we are now considering how to build on that. Our Thunderclap reached the 100 supporters-limit, thank you to everyone who supported! We will keep you informed of any other projects we start, for now it is back to appraisal on Xiapex and hoping NICE makes the right decision on Radiotherapy. Exciting times for Dupuytren's patients.
