The National Collaborating Centre/Internal Development team may make a focussed call for evidence on specific clinical questions or sub-questions after completing its initial searches. It is able to make a call for evidence at any point during development of the guideline and stakeholders will usually be given 4 weeks to respond. The NCC will approach all registered stakeholders for this evidence.
The National Collaborating Centre/Internal Development team may not issue any calls for evidence for a guideline if the Guideline Development Group feels it is not necessary. In addition, the National Collaborating Centre/Internal Development team will accept relevant confidential data for consideration by the Guideline Development Group. The Health Economic plan, review questions and search strategies will be available on the website 5 weeks prior to the draft guideline consultation commencing.
