NICE Guideline on Obesity

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has published a clinical guideline on the prevention, identification, assessment and management of obesity in adults and children.

The guideline also provides two quick reference guides, one for local authorities, schools and early years providers, workplaces and the public and one for the National Health Service.

These documents contain advice on the key elements of a healthy balanced diet and suggestions on how to remain physically active. They also contain consideration of the place in overall therapy of drug treatments and surgical interventions.

Action: All clinicians who provide lifestyle and dietary advice will find this guideline a useful reminder and reference.
