NICE is taking on a new role in helping to improve quality in the NHS: setting quality standards, advising on indicators for the Quality and Outcomes Framework, and developing a fellowship programme to reward contributions to quality care.

NICE cost-saving support

  • Disinvestment. Decommissioning. Saving money. Whatever you call it, the NHS faces an unprecedented financial challenge.
  • Use NICE guidance to help you to cut costs and maintain and even improve services.
