Tools and resources
This resource accompanies the NICE medical technologies guidance on Thopaz+ portable digital system for managing chest drains. It was developed using NICE's process guide for adoption support resources for health technologies. It is an implementation tool that summarises the experiences reported by NHS sites which have adopted this technology and shares the learning that took place.
It is the responsibility of local commissioners and providers to implement the guidance at a local level, being mindful of their duty to advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations. Nothing in this document should be interpreted in a way that would be inconsistent with this.
