Review decision: 

Following the recent surveillance review decision, which checks the need to update CG90, an update will be scheduled into the work programme. Details of the update will be available on the guidelines in development webpage in due course. No further checks of this guideline will be scheduled until this update is published.

Next review date: March 2015

This guideline is published alongside ‘Depression in adults with a chronic physical health problem: treatment and management’ (NICE guideline CG91), which makes recommendations on the identification, treatment and management of depression in adults aged 18 years and older who also have a chronic physical health problem.

This guideline updates and replaces NICE guideline CG23 and partially replaces NICE technology appraisal guidance 59 and NICE technology appraisal guidance 97.
