Please note that this is an extension to the original consultation which was held from 6 March to 3 April 2020. If your organisation commented previously, you will not need to resubmit your comments. However, if you have additional comments that you would like to submit, you will be welcome to.
24 June 2020 In progress. Development of this quality standard has restarted and the timelines have been updated.
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.
