7. The services we offer
The main functions of NICE are to provide guidance in the fields of public health, interventional procedures, heath technologies and clinical guidelines. NICE also provides a web-based service, NHS Evidence, that helps people find, access and use high-quality clinical and non-clinical evidence and best practice the NHS and the accreditation of evidence providers.
The Implementation Directorate ensures effective dissemination of guidance to the appropriate target audiences and actively engages with the NHS, local government and the wider community and provides tools to support putting NICE guidance into practice
