Programme development groups
NICE sets up an independent programme development group (PDG) for each public health programme topic being developed.
Group members include:
- people working directly in public health
- managers in the health service and other organisations
- representatives from 'lay' groups such as charities or patient/carer organisations.
The programme development group looks at the evidence available and considers comments made on draft versions of the guidance issued for consultation before making final recommendations.
A list of the PDG for each programme can be found on each project page, under Key Documents.
