Scottish Health Technologies Group

A knowledge broker for Scotland's health networks     

The Scottish Health Technologies Group (SHTG) is an advisory group set up to provide assistance to NHSScotland boards when considering selected health technologies, excluding medicines which will be reviewed by the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC).

The remit of the SHTG is to provide advice on the evidence about the clinical and cost effectiveness of existing and new technologies likely to have significant implications for patient care in Scotland. This advice should support the planning and decision making processes in NHS boards. This includes a horizon scanning function to provide early intelligence on health technologies in development.

  • About the group
    Information about the Scottish Health Technologies Group including group membership details.
  • Our publications
    A list of our publications which provide advice on the evidence about the clinical and cost effectiveness of existing and new technologies likely to have significant implications for patient care in Scotland.
  • Our work programme
    Information on the topics and technologies currently under consideration on our work programme.
  • Meetings in public
    Our meetings are open to members of the public and media to observe. This enables stakeholders and members of the public to understand how evidence is assessed and interpreted, how consultation comments are taken into account and how SHTG advice is made.
  • Suggest a topic for SHTG consideration
    Stakeholders are invited to suggest topics of interest to the Scottish Health Technologies Group. To do this you are asked to complete a topic referral form.
