Rapid Uptake Products (RUPs)

The Rapid Uptake Products (RUP) programme has been designed to support stronger adoption and spread of proven innovations. It identifies and supports products with NICE approval that support the NHS Long Term Plan’s key clinical priorities, but have lower than expected uptake to date. Click here to read the technical notes.

The HIN will be supporting the adoption of the following innovations through the RUP Programme during 2021:

  1. Lipid Management : High Intensity Statins, Ezetimibe and PCSK9 inhibitors
  2. Measuring fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) concentration in asthma: products NIOX VERO and NObreath
  3. Biologics for treating severe asthma: Reslizumab, Benralizumab, Mepolizumab and Omalizumab
  4. Tamoxifen for prevention of breast cancer for women at known risk

Applications for Pathway Transformation Funding to help providers overcome practical obstacles to introducing Lipid Management, FeNO testing and Biologics are open from 4 January 2021 until midday, 30 April 2021. Click here to find out more about applying.
