We use the best available evidence to develop recommendations that guide decisions in health, public health and social care.
Critical assessment of evidence to help you make decisions. Advice, rather than formal NICE guidance.

We've brought together guidance, resources and other information that may help you.
We've updated our summaries of current evidence for primary care professionals with some information about COVID-19. This is largely based on guidance from Public Health England.
We're part of the research to access pathway for investigational drugs for COVID-19 (RAPID-C19), a collaboration that aims to get treatments to patients quickly and safely.
We're hosting these guides while we integrate the content into our guidance. They aim to help hospital departments continue essential care for patients while supporting the wider hospital and community to care for people with COVID-19.
A guide for internal developers and external collaborators on assessing the quality of wider sources of data and evidence in our guidance.
A 3-stage approach to help anyone working on testing for COVID-19 to collect the best possible data and evidence while tests are being quickly developed and validated.
A guide to evidence collection for medicines, plus free scientific advice for researchers developing novel diagnostics or therapeutics for COVID-19.
