NICE Bites Bulletins

 NICE Bites is a monthly bulletin from the North west Medicines Information Centre which summarises    key prescribing points from NICE guidance.

 The aim of this publication is to provide healthcare professionals with a clear and succinct summary of key prescribing points taken
 from NICE guidance. It has emerged from collaboration with colleagues in primary care in response to a need for easily accessible
 information. We hope it will be a useful tool in the implementation of NICE recommendations.  Each edition will highlight sections
 of NICE guidance which relate to prescribing and will cover recent guidance as well as a catch-up programme of previous
 guidance. It will cover the following:
 Clinical Guidelines
 These are guidelines on the appropriate treatment and care of people with specific diseases and conditions and are based on
 the best available evidence. 
 Technology appraisals
 These are recommendations on the use of new and existing medicines and treatments within the NHS. It is important to bear
 in mind that technology appraisals carry a statutory obligation for CCGs to provide funding within 3 months of publication. 
 NICE recommendations are based on systematic reviews of the best available evidence. When minimal evidence is available
 recommendations are based on the guideline development group’s opinion of what constitutes good practice. For a complete
 review of each topic please refer to the full NICE guidance which can be accessed at www.nice.org.uk.  Healthcare professionals in
 England are expected to take NICE guidance fully into account when exercising their clinical judgement however, it does not
 replace their knowledge and skills.
