The NCCs may make a focussed call for evidence on specific clinical questions or subquestions, after it has done initial searches. It will be able to make a call at any point during development of the guideline, and stakeholders will usually be given 4weeks to respond. The NCC will approach all registered stakeholders for this evidence. The NCC may not issue any calls for evidence for a guideline if the Guideline Development Group (GDG) feels it is not necessary. In addition, the NCCs will accept relevant confidential data for consideration by the GDG.

NICE consulted on its scope for the clinical guideline Dyspepsia: Managing Dyspepsia in Adults in Primary Care (CG17) from 24/02/12 - 22/03/12. The consultation provided useful feedback from stakeholders but did not provide a clear consensus on the main areas of clinical practice that would benefit from national guidance. The scope has been revised following the initial consultation and NICE is now holding a second consultation on the revised scope. NICE welcomes any further feedback from its stakeholders on the revised scope, in particular, whether the revised scope addresses or omits any areas of specific importance to clinical practice.
18 October 2011
