Key events during the development of the guidance:

Date Update
08 May 2018 The final quality assurance step (Resolution) to ensure NICE acts fairly, has now taken place. The Resolution process is intended to identify errors or breaches of process before publication and respondents must specify which of these two grounds they are requesting resolution on. One or more resolution requests were received on this technology. An initial scrutiny meeting will take place on Friday 11 May 2018 to agree if there has been a breach on either grounds (for more information please see section 6 of the programme process guide). Guidance publication has been paused whilst this process is completed. Please contact if you have any queries.
