NICE has announced that it will host a single point of advice on caring for those with COVID-19 and on the clinical management of COVID-19.
The initiative will bring together NHS England and NHS Improvement specialty guides, as well as its own COVID-19 rapid guidelines, to the same place. Last week the initial phase was completed, in which 24 NHS England and NHS Improvement COVID-19 speciality guides were transferred over to the NICE website.
Paul Chrisp, director of the Centre for Guidelines at NICE, said:
“This important initiative will see the creation of a single, trusted, integrated suite of Covid-19 guidance for clinicians and care staff. It will enable us to capitalise on the work that was done rapidly in the face of the initial outbreak and adapt our approach so we can continue to best meet the needs of the system.”
“The resource will be easier to find and will be kept up to date to ensure it remains relevant in light of new, emerging evidence and as the pandemic develops and changes.”
