We are committed to involving professionals, patients, carers, service users and the public in the development of our guidance.

Every piece of NICE guidance and every quality standard is developed by an independent committee of people which includes those who provide, commission and use health and social care services. Our consultations allow individuals and organisations to contribute to the development of our recommendations.

You can help shape the recommendations we make by joining one of our committees.


During guidance development we provide opportunities for organisations and members of the public to comment on our recommendations.
