About this guidance

NICE technology appraisal guidance is about the use of new and existing medicines and treatments in the NHS.

This guidance was developed using the NICE single technology appraisal process.

It has been incorporated into the NICE Pathway on myocardial infarction: rehabilitation and preventing further cardiovascular disease along with other related guidance and products.

We have produced information for the public explaining this guidance. Tools to help you put the guidance into practice and information about the evidence it is based on are also available.

NICE produces guidance, standards and information on commissioning and providing high‑quality healthcare, social care, and public health services. We have agreements to provide certain NICE services to Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Decisions on how NICE guidance and other products apply in those countries are made by ministers in the Welsh government, Scottish government, and Northern Ireland Executive. NICE guidance or other products may include references to organisations or people responsible for commissioning or providing care that may be relevant only to England.
