NICE Consultation – future social care health topics

NICE Consultation on future social care health topics – a call for feedback!

The Health and Social Care Act 2012 set out a responsibility for NICE to develop quality standards and guidelines for social care in England. In 2013 the Department of Health ran a consultation to identify social care topics suitable for developing into NICE guidelines and quality standards. An initial set of topics has been referred by the Department of Health (DH) and Department for Education (DfE).

In order to develop the longer term social care work programme and improve care, the DH and NICE now want to hear from stakeholders to help decide on potential additional topics. This will inform the quality standards programme and where there are no existing relevant guidelines, this topic list will also inform the development of future guidelines.
