About this information

NICE guidelines provide advice on the care and support that should be offered to people who use health and care services.

This information explains the advice about chest pain that is set out in NICE guideline CG95.

This is an update of advice on assessing and diagnosing chest pain that NICE produced inĀ 2010.

Does this information apply to me?

Yes, if you are an adult with chest pain that is thought to be related to the heart. It covers the tests and treatment that should be offered to you while your condition is being diagnosed.

It does not cover chest pain that has already been diagnosed, or chest pain that is not related to the heart.
