NICE Guidelines

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence [NICE]
NICE Guidelines for Diabetes

NICE is an independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance on promoting good health and preventing and treating ill health. NHS Guidelines advise the NHS on caring for people with specific conditions or disease and the treatments they should receive. In England and Wales, the NHS should follow our recommendations. Therefore local Primary Care Trusts [PCTs] should follow NICE Guidance but they are not obliged to do so. If you are not receiving the care that NICE recommends, then you can enquire why not.

If you want to find out what care and treatment you should be receiving, you can access the full guidance, a summary of the guidance or a version written for the general public [non-medical people] from their website: . For people who do not have access to the internet, copies of the guidance can be obtained by phone: 0845 003 7783.
