Our programmes


We use the best available evidence to develop recommendations to improve health and social care.

Our guidance takes many forms: NICE guidelines (clinical, social care, public health, medicines practice), technology appraisals, interventional procedures, medical technologies, diagnostics and highly specialised technologies.

NICE advice

NICE advice provides summaries of the best available evidence for medicines, MedTech innovation briefings and public health briefings for local government.

Shared learning

Learn from other organisations and see how they implement NICE guidance locally.

Our library of case studies shows how our guidance is being used to improve the quality of health and social care.

Standards and indicators

Quality standards provide measurable quality improvements within a particular area of health or care.

We also develop indicators for commissioners and primary care.

Topic selection

Find out how different teams at NICE select their topics for development into advice and guidance.

Patient safety

Our role in helping to improve patient safety and reduce the risk of harm across the health system.

Using NICE products

We've produced a resource to help you use NICE products. This will help you to understand the range of products across all our programmes and how you can use them.

Observational data collection

We're overseeing generation and collection of evidence that will be used to support NHS England commissioning processes.

Managed access

Managed access allows patients to access promising new treatments that would otherwise not be recommended because it is too uncertain whether the treatment is cost-effective.
