NICE Guidance and what it means to you

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is an independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance on promoting good health and preventing and treating ill health.

From respiratory disorders and infectious diseases to cancer care and mental health, NICE provides advice to the NHS on caring for people with both physical and mental health conditions and outlines the treatments they should receive.

Our service uses relevant NICE guidelines to help plan, deliver and to review the treatments we provide. Our professional area contains NICE guidelines and a number of national policy documents in relation to the provision of Talking Treatments in the NHS, but you might find the information booklet below the best place to find out more about NICE and Talking Therapies.

Here's one such guideline we use...

Nice Guidance 123

NICE Guideline 123 'Getting help and support for common mental health problems' is just one such guideline that helps our service to aspire to the highest quality care you expect.

This information booklet has been written for people experiencing common mental health problems and it may also be useful for their families or carers.

We expect that the care you receive from us matches what is described in this booklet and would encourage you to raise any concerns you may have with us at the earliest opportunity.
