Service planning

NICE has developed these tools to help those with a role in the strategic planning or delivery of services for a condition (or set of circumstances) that are addressed by NICE guidance. These tools are targeted at those who are responsible for planning and putting the guidance into practice.

The content of tools depends on the guidance but can include the following:

  • background information such as prevalence of the condition
  • an overview of the key steps and decision points in the pathway for a specific piece of NICE guidance
  • practical suggestions for putting NICE guidance into practice locally
  • identifying likely implementation barriers and possible ways to overcome these for different audiences.

We are looking for ways to improve our tools and welcome your feedback. Please follow these links to a short evaluation form for tools for clinical guidelines and for tools for public health guidance. If you are experiencing problems accessing or using this tool, please email implementation@nice.org.uk
