Responsibility for undertaking a review of this guidance at the designated review date has passed to the National Clinical Guidelines Centre for Acute and Chronic Conditions (NCGC-ACC). The National Collaborating Centre for Nursing and Supportive Care is no longer active.
This guidance updates and replaces NICE clinical guideline B (published in April 2001).
