NICE clinical guidelines
NICE guidelines are applicable to England and Wales, and Northern Ireland is able to adopt them if they wish. There are a number of NICE guidelines that are relevant to the NCT’s work, listed below.
There is an Evidence Search page provided by NICE which allows you to search by topic https://www.evidence.nhs.uk/. This was formerly known as NHS Evidence. NICE produces Evidence Updates to provide a straightforward and succinct overview of significant new research and evidence published since the literature search was last conducted for the accredited guidance it updates. These are included below.
