Understanding NICE guidance
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) produce versions of their guidance for patients, carers and the public.
'Understanding NICE guidance' leaflets summarise, in plain English, the recommendations that NICE make to health and other professionals.
These documents are designed to complement, not replace, other sources of patient information that explain in more detail the condition and available treatments. Most contain contact information for relevant patient or carer organisations that can provide more detailed information and support for specific conditions.
