NICE does understand this and wants to make its guidance better for front-line clinicians. This panel has been deliberately set up to try and capture the voices of GPs on the ground (not those in the ‘ivory towers’). It will run as an informal on-line group, starting off with one or two guidelines, gathering views and listening to good ideas.
We know that everyone is really busy and that we like to communicate in plain English so things will be kept simple – no form filling, no need to read complicated papers. Contribute as much or as little as you can.
Please join us – we hope to form an enthusiastic and supportive group who together can really make a difference to how we develop and receive guidance and evidence. Guidelines we are asked to use should have our needs and our patients’ needs at their heart.
