Who we are

We are the experts in evidence-based best practice and value for money. Our core purpose is to help practitioners and commissioners get the best care to patients, fast, while ensuring value for the taxpayer. 

We do this by:

  • producing useful and usable guidance for health and care practitioners
  • providing rigorous, independent assessment of complex evidence for new health technologies
  • developing recommendations that focus on what matters most and drive innovation into the hands of health and care practitioners
  • encouraging the uptake of best practice to improve outcomes for everyone.
