I know that NICE has refused to recommend Belimumab for treatment for lupus patients (4 days ago!) but this does not necessarily mean that a PCT can't sanction it, if they're presented with good reasons, evidence and consultants' recommendation. But the NICE refusal and the general drive to cut costs will probably be against success, I should think. It would be good to hear from people who have experience of this process.
