NICE launches general practice website

NICE has dedicated a section of its website to streamline the use of its guidance in general practice.

The microsite, which acts as a hub for existing guidelines and advice, aims to keep primary care professionals up to date with NICE guidance relevant specifically to their area.

It gives easy access to guidance during a consultation, steps to ensure a practice is up to date with clinical guidance and support for commissioners, among others.

Another part aggregates resources for special groups, such as patients who smoke or antenatal care.

The site also includes news on the latest guidance that affects primary care, as well as when to expect forthcoming updates.

NICE has invited GPs to comment on the new site until 1 December.
