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. For details, see our website.
