National Institute for Clinical Excellence

National Institute of Clinical Excellence
National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) - was set up as a Special Health Authority for England and Wales on 1 April 1999.
It is part of the National Health Service and its role is to provide patients, health professionals and the public with guidance on current "best practice". This guidance is intended to cover both individual health technologies (including medicines, medical devices, diagnostic techniques, and procedures) and the clinical management of specific conditions.
At the end of 2003, The Task Force submitted proposals for concordance and partnership in medicine taking to be considered as a topic for a guidance produced by NICE.  These proposals are now being considered by the Department of Health.  The proposals put forward by Medicines Partnership are available to download (in pdf format) below.
