Date Update
06 April 2020 Topic update: this quality standard has not been defined as therapeutically critical (please follow the link titled rapid guidelines and evidence summaries within the yellow banner on the NICE website homepage about for information on recent changes to the way we work). The quality standard will therefore be paused. At this stage, we are unable to provide alternative timelines as to when the quality standard may be re-started but we will provide updates as and when this information becomes clear.
