Annual report 2008-09
Over the past 10 years we have published 583 individual pieces of NICE guidance; we have earned a national and international reputation for the quality of our work; and we have made a real difference to the lives of millions of people.
In this past year we have published 19 clinical guidelines, 30 technology appraisals, advice on the use of 39 interventional procedures and 7 pieces of public heath guidance. The latter included recommendations about promoting physical activity, and finding ways to decrease mortality in disadvantaged areas.
But publishing NICE guidance is not enough. we also need to help professionals put our guidance into practice. Our field team of implementation consultants engages with people working in the NHS, local government and the wider community. And we have published 25 commissioning guides to help the NHS in England commission effective, evidence-based care.
