Resource impact statement

No significant resource impact is anticipated

We do not expect this update to the existing guideline CG166 Ulcerative disease: management to have a significant impact on resources; that is:

  • the resource impact of implementing any single guideline recommendation will be less than £1 million per year in England (or £1,800 per 100,000 population) and

  • the resource impact of implementing the whole guideline in England will be less than £5 million per year (or £9,100 per 100,000 population).

The updated guideline reviewed the evidence on inducing remission in people with ulcerative colitis. Where clinical practice does change as a result of this update, there will not be a significant change in resource use.

Ulcerative colitis services are commissioned by clinical commissioning groups. Providers are NHS hospital trusts and primary care services.
