NICE will be inviting comments and feedback from stakeholders and the public on the new manual for developing NICE guidelines

From 1 April 2014 NICE will be inviting comments and feedback from stakeholders and the public on the new manual for developing NICE guidelines.

Consultation dates: 1 April – 30 June 2014

Teams across NICE have been working together to create a single manual for the development of clinical, public health and social care guidelines. This new manual will harmonise the processes of the different centres developing guidelines, incorporating new ways of working to improve the process, and will also increase transparency by documenting the rationale for use of different methods. The manual for developing NICE guidelines will be implemented in January 2015.

NICE will email all registered stakeholders across NICE work programmes, and members of current NICE guideline development Committees, details of the consultation and how to respond when the consultation goes live. Details of the consultation will also be posted on the NICE website. NICE recommend that if your organisation is registered as a stakeholder, you submit collated comments from your organisation.
