Public health stakeholder registration form

Please read the accompanying notes before completing this registration form, including how NICE defines stakeholders for the public health programme.

Individuals are unable to register as stakeholders for public health guidance. If you are an individual or an organisation that does not fit our definition of stakeholder, you can still contribute to the development of a clinical guideline or quality standard via an appropriate national, professional or patient organisation.

Completing the form

This is the form for registering interest in the public health programmes. Please name one person from your organisation as the contact. Indicate which topics you are interested in by ticking the box, and give a very brief description of why your organisation should be considered a stakeholder.

Sending the form

Stakeholders will be accepted at any time during the development process and can participate in all consultation stages. Please consult our website for detailed information on the progress of development and the consultation stages for each topic.

Your completed form will be submitted to the public health team. Registration is automatic, and we will not contact you unless your organisation does not fit our definition of stakeholder.

Once you have become a registered stakeholder we will inform you about each new relevant public health topic. If you move organisations, are no longer the NICE contact for your organisation or would like to be removed from our database for any other reason, please email

Your organisation

Please tick which of the following categories applies to your organisation (you must tick at least one category). Please note: these fields must be completed in order to progress the registration.

  • National patient, service user, carer or voluntary organisations, or charities, that directly or indirectly represent the public health or disease prevention interests of people covered by the guidance in England.
  • Healthwatch England and local Healthwatch organisations
  • National organisations representing public health, health and social care and other professionals who provide activities and services covered by the guidance in England
  • Local authorities, and representative bodies of local government
  • Public and private utilities in England
  • Providers and commissioners of health, public health and social care in England
  • Commercial industries which are relevant to the public health arena, whose interests may be affected by the guidance
  • The Department of Health and other relevant Government departments and agencies.
  • Statutory organisations such as the Care Quality Commission, Ofsted, Public Health England, the National Screening Committee, or the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation
  • Government or national statutory organisations in Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland, including NHS Health Scotland, the Welsh Assembly Government.
  • Research organisations and academic institutions across the United Kingdom
  • Overseas agencies with a remit covering England, including the World Health Organisation and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

For practical reasons, only national organisations can register as stakeholders. Local patient, service user, carer, community and professional groups cannot register as stakeholders unless there is no national organisation that represents the group's specific interests. Nor can individuals register as stakeholders. However, individuals and local organisations are encouraged to participate through an appropriate registered stakeholder. The registered stakeholders for each guidance topic are shown on the guidance summary page.
