Marking 25 years of NICE

Looking back over the journey from our humble beginnings in 1999, exploring the impact NICE has had so far, and the changes we're making to ensure we continue to add value to an evolving health and care system.

How NICE makes decisions

We produce evidence-based guidance to support the health and care system, ensure value for money, and provide people with access to the best quality care. When it comes to decision making, we follow a rigorous process to develop our guidance.
