Spain's new network of healthcare technology evaluation agencies, yet to be established, will function like NICE, the health technology appraisal body in England and Wales, Spain's health ministry has said. Along with other measures such as centralised purchasing, the network is part of the government's National Health System reform plan, aimed at shaving 10%, or €7 billion, off healthcare spending. The government approved the plan on 20 April.
