Future quality standards

The Department of Health and other key partners have worked with NICE to develop a core library of topics for quality standard development in health-related topics. Future topics will be referred to NICE by NHS England for health-related areas, and by the Department of Health and Department for Education for non-health areas such as social care. This quality standard has been developed in the context of all quality standards referred to NICE, including the following topics scheduled for future development:

  • Medicines optimisation (covering medicines adherence and safe prescribing).
