The guideline development process - an overview for stakeholders, the public and the NHS (third edition)

This booklet summarises the process used for developing NICE clinical guidelines from April 2007 onwards, including:

• how organisations can register as stakeholders

• the stages when registered stakeholders can contribute to the development of a guideline.

The section on topic selection refers to new criteria that were introduced in 2007.

The booklet was first published as an appendix to ‘The guidelines manual' and will be updated as needed if the process changes. This edition replaces the February 2004 edition of ‘The guideline development process: an overview for stakeholders, the public and the NHS' (reference N0472).
