The National Collaborating Centre may make a focused call for evidence on specific clinical questions or sub-questions after completing its initial searches. It is able to make a call for evidence at any point during development of the guideline and stakeholders will usually be given 4weeks to respond. The NCC will approach all registered stakeholders for this evidence.

The National Collaborating Centre may not issue any calls for evidence for a guideline if the Guideline Development Group feels it is not necessary.

In addition, the National Collaborating Centre will accept relevant confidential data for consideration by the Guideline Development Group. The Health Economic plan, review questions and search strategies will be available on the website 5 weeks prior to the draft guideline consultation commencing.
