This topic has been paused. The Health Technology Assessment (HTA) programme at the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has commissioned a project in which there is significant overlap with the planned scope of the Diagnostic Guidance.The topic has therefore been paused and any decision to proceed with the topic will depend on the outcome of the NIHR project.
