The public health guideline for PH52 Needle and syringe programmes has been checked by NICE for the need for update.
This 2018 surveillance review has taken into account 2 NICE guidelines, PH52 Needle and syringe programmes and CG52 Drug misuse in over 16s. Both will be having a separate stakeholder consultation:
- Needle and syringe programmes NICE guideline PH52 (March 2014)
- Drug misuse in over 16s: opioid detoxification NICE guideline CG52 (July 2007)
Registered stakeholders for the guideline are invited to comment on the provisional decision via this website. Stakeholders may comment on the proposals for either or both of the guidelines, according to their knowledge and expertise of the topic areas.
If you’re commenting for an organisation, your organisation needs to be registered as a stakeholder.
Not eligible? Contact the registered stakeholder organisation that most closely represents your interests and pass your comments to them.
We can accept comments from individuals. These will be considered, but you won’t get a formal response and they won’t be posted on the NICE website. Wherever possible we encourage you to submit your comments through a registered stakeholder organisation.
Note that the provisional review decision presented here does not constitute NICE's formal decision on this guideline. The decision is provisional and may change after consultation.
