The NCCs may make a focussed call for evidence on specific clinical questions or subquestions, after it has done initial searches. It will be able to make a call 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 NCC may not issue any calls for evidence for a guideline if the Guideline Development Group (GDG) feels it is not necessary. In addition, the NCCs will accept relevant confidential data for consideration by the GDG. The Health Economic plan, review questions and search strategies will be available on the website 5 weeks prior to consultation commencing.

We are consulting on the draft scope for this guideline and recruiting Committee members between 15 April 2015 and 13 May 2015.

The scope defines what the guideline will cover. We want to hear your views.

The Committee looks at the evidence and develops the recommendations in the guideline. We are looking for specialists in the topic, people working in health and social care more generally (such as GPs) and commissioners, and people using health and care services and/or carers or advocates, and people from communities affected by the guideline.
