Resource impact statement

No significant additional resource impact is anticipated

We do not expect this guideline update to have a significant additional impact on resources as the recommendations have not changed from previous NICE guidance.

Implementing the recommendations in the guidance is expected to reduce the number of people with intermediate/inderterminate burns wounds receiving surgery. It is anticipated that this will create savings for commissioners.

This service is commissioned by NHS England. Providers are NHS hospital trusts.

The original resource impact template has been updated following a review of the guidance in 2017. The main assumptions are retained from the original template. Where up to date cost and population data are available they have been used in the updated resource impact template. The original costing report was removed from the NICE website following the review of the guidance in 2017. If you would like access to this, please email
