Further explanation of the methodology used can be found in the quality standards Process guide on the NICE website.
The documents below contain recommendations from NICE guidance or other NICE‑accredited recommendations that were used by the Quality Standards Advisory Committee to develop the quality standard statements and measures.
Hepatitis B (chronic). NICE clinical guideline 165 (2013).
Hepatitis B and C: ways to promote and offer testing. NICE public health guidance 43 (2012).
Reducing differences in the uptake of immunisations. NICE public health guidance 21 (2009).
It is important that the quality standard is considered alongside current policy documents, including:
Public Health England (2013) Immunisation against infectious disease: the green book, chapter 18: Hepatitis B
Department of Health (2011) Hepatitis B antenatal screening and newborn immunisation programme: best practice guidance.
