NICE consults on support and service guidance for children and young people with disabilities

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) are seeking views in their consultation on the NICE guideline on children and young people with disabilities & severe complex needs: integrated health & social care support & service guidance.

The consultation on the draft scope for this NICE guideline closes at 5pm on Tuesday 5 February 2019. The consultation page contains the documents, background documents and instructions on how to comment.

NICE would particularly welcome comments on how to focus the scope further. NICE is aware that the population for the guideline is large and diverse, and the list of questions to be addressed currently quite long. Suggestions as to issues or groups where NICE guidance can add value would be useful.

Committee recruitment will end at the same time the draft scope consultation closes. NICE are recruiting people with a practitioner, care provider or commissioner background and lay members (people using services, family members and carers, and members of the public and community or voluntary sector) to join the Committee for this guideline. More information on the committee recruitment page on the NICE website.

If you have any further queries on this draft scope consultation, NICE request contact be made to CYPseverecomplexneeds@nice.org.uk
