Welcome to the NHS ICB Excess Treatment Cost site

Excess Treatment costs are the difference between the treatment costs incurred on a study and the costs of the existing standard treatment.

This page provides stakeholders with the management and process involved in the payment of Excess Treatment costs (ETCs) for non-commercial research studies and commissioned by Integrated Care Boards (ICB). Further details of ETCs can be found on our dedicated page.

Additional information is also contained regarding ETCs that are commissioned by other bodies, along with signposting of useful information.
