Social Value Judgements: principles for the development of NICE guidance
Social Value Judgements: Principles for the Development of NICE Guidance describes the principles that NICE should follow in designing the processes it uses to develop its guidance and in developing individual pieces of guidance. It is mainly about the judgements that NICE and its advisory bodies should apply when making decisions about the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of interventions, especially where such decisions affect the allocation of NHS resources.
The current (2008) edition of Social Value Judgements is the second and it pre-dates the Equality Act 2010. The Act's requirements now govern NICE's approach to applying social value principles when considering legally protected groups.
We are currently revising the Social Value Judgements: Principles for the Development of NICE Guidance document and this will be completed in early 2015.
