NICE Guidance - May 2014

The National Institute of Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published new guidance for the month of May 2014. This month there is one public health guideline that impacts upon primary care.

The Overweight and obese adults - lifestyle weight management public health guideline makes recommendations on the provision of effective multi-component lifestyle weight management services for adults who are overweight or obese. It replaces a specific section of the Obesity Guideline of 2006 that applied to self-help, commercial and community programmes.

This guideline focuses on lifestyle weight management programmes that:

  • accept self-referrals or referrals from health or social care practitioners
  • are provided by the public, private or voluntary sector
  • are based in the community, workplaces, primary care or online

Action: Clinicians should be aware of this month's new guidance and implement any necessary changes to practice.
