Election delays guidance

The National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) has issued updated information regarding the status of publication of final guidance and consultations on draft guidance during the current political negotiations to establish a government.

NICE has a duty to be politically impartial and in order to not provide topics of inappropriate focus or to distract from important political debate they follow the rules of purdah as advised by the Cabinet Office.

Action: Clinicians will be well aware of the current political negotiations. NICE are expected to publish planned guidance once a government is established.
