Changes to how we work

During the pandemic we have supported the system with our rapid guidelines and therapeutically critical guidance. From 1 June 2020 we're restarting publication of guidance not related to COVID-19. 

As the NHS and wider health and care system starts to make arrangements for the next phase of its response to the pandemic, we will plan a phased restart to our publication of guidance. We'll publish finalised guidance as soon as possible. We'll give priority to other topics that support the system to return to normal working.

Topics prioritised during the initial stage

These guidance topics were identified as being therapeutically critical and kept to their planned publication dates. Further topics will now be prioritised.

Technology appraisals

Diagnostics guidance

Interventional procedures guidance

Medical technologies guidance

Medtech innovation briefing

  • Chest imaging artificial intelligence technologies

The situation is changing all the time and we'll continue to review our plans and update our stakeholders accordingly.
