NICE guidance can help:

  • NHS organisations, social care and children's services meet the requirements of the DH's 'Operating framework for 2008/09' and 'Operational plans 2008/09–2010/11'.

  • NHS organisations, social care and children's services meet the requirements of the Department of Communities and Local Government's 'The new performance framework for local authorities and local authority partnerships'.

  • National and local organisations within the public sector meet government indicators and targets to improve health and reduce health inequalities.

  • Local authorities fulfil their remit to promote the economic, social and environmental wellbeing of communities.

  • Local NHS organisations, local authorities and other local public sector partners benefit from any identified cost savings, disinvestment opportunities or opportunities for re-directing resources.

  • Provide a focus for multi-sector partnerships for health, such as local strategic partnerships.

NICE has developed tools to help organisations put this guidance into practice.
