NICE guidance can help:

  • NHS organisations, social care and children's services meet the requirements of the DH's revised 'Operating framework for 2010/11'.

  • National and local organisations improve quality and health outcomes and reduce health inequalities.

  • Local authorities fulfil their remit to promote the wellbeing of communities.

  • Local NHS organisations, local authorities and other local 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 the integration of health and social care and health improvement.

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