The independent interventional procedures advisory committee (IPAC) advises NICE on the formulation of guidance on the safety and efficacy of interventional procedures.

It includes health professionals working in the NHS and people who are familiar with the issues affecting patients and carers.

The committee takes advice from specialist advisors, nominated by health professional bodies whose members are involved in the use of interventional procedures.
