The Centre for Clinical Practice develops clinical guidelines which form recommendations on the appropriate treatment and care of people with specific diseases and conditions within the NHS. They are based on the best available evidence. Guidelines help health professionals in their work, but they do not replace their knowledge and skills
NICE public health guidance makes recommendations for England on what is known from research and practice about the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of interventions and broader programmes, including the systems in which they are delivered, and the methods used to deliver them.
NICE public health guidance is relevant to health professionals working in clinical and community settings, and commissioners, managers and team leaders with responsibility for health improvement in the NHS, local authorities, schools, and public, private and voluntary sectors. It is also relevant to people interested in improving their own health or the health of their children or other people they care for, and to the wider community.
