The Department of Health is running an online consultation exercise until April 26th on Topics for new NICE quality standards and guidance to improve the quality of social care.
NICE quality standards for social care are likely to have an impact upon which services are chosen by funders and commissioners. We are working with NICE at a national level to influence the choice of which topics to prioritise and also the approach taken to producing standards. This is important as NICE bases standards on available evidence, and there is a weak research base for much of our members’ work.
