NICE and NHS Evidence - practical support for general practice
NICE support for delivering high quality primary care
The resources in this section have been developed to enable general practice professionals to improve outcomes for their patients by ensuring that their practice is up to date with current recommendations from NICE on clinical practice, public health, social care and support for GPs as commissioners.
NICE is developing new ways to display elements of its guidance which will enable faster access to relevant information, which we know that GPs will value while they are in consultations with patients. As soon as these resources are available, we will make them available to you here.
The site has been built with the help of GPs, practice nurses and practice managers, and will continue to develop. To comment or suggest improvements, please email email@example.com
