Some new cancer drugs have been deemed too expensive and not cost effective by the UK's National Institute for Clinical Excellence. In response, drug companies have created PASin which they offer discounts or rebates to the UK National Health Service (NHS), so that patients can access these drugs. For example, in some schemes the NHS will pay for the cost of the drug if the patient responds, while the drug company will pay for it if the patient does not respond. In the NHS, cancer medicines are supplied to patients in hospital provider trusts, who are then reimbursed for the cost of the medicine from the patient's local primary care trust (PCT).

UMMC selects experts in a wide range of specialties, procedures, and topics. This process allows them to maximize the time that they have to answer questions. For example, UMMC has individual experts who answer questions on kidney cancer, kidney cancer surgery, and kidney transplants, rather than having one expert who answers questions on all three topics.
