The Health Technology Board for Scotland (HTBS) has advised that the National Institute for Clinical Excellence guidance on the use of metal-on-metal (MoM) hip resurfacing is as valid for Scotland as it is for England and Wales, subject to service-specific considerations. The final guidance is due to be published on August 14, after consultation on issues regarding the low incidence of the procedure in Scotland and requirements for data-collection and reporting.
