NICE

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is the independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance on the promotion of good health and the prevention and treatment of ill health.

NICE produces guidance in three areas of health:

  1. Public health - guidance on the promotion of good health and the prevention of ill health for those working in the NHS, local authorities and the wider public and voluntary sector
  2. Health technologies - guidance on the use of new and existing medicines, treatments and procedures within the NHS
  3. Clinical practice - guidance on the appropriate treatment and care of people with specific diseases and conditions within the NHS.

Evidence Updates

Evidence Updates from NHS Evidence – a service provided by NICE, focuses on a summary of selected new evidence relevant to NICE clinical guidelines.

Evidence Updates do not replace current accredited guidance, but they do highlight new evidence that might generate a future change in practice.  By producing these Evidence Updates NHS Evidence seeks to reduce the need for individuals, managers and commissioners to search for new evidence and to inform guidance developers of new evidence in their field.

A New Evidence Update on Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms has been published and is called Evidence Update 11.  Please visit the NICE website to view this update.
