NICE quality standards are specific, concise statements for the treatment and prevention of different diseases and conditions derived from the best available evidence. They are developed independently of NICE by professionals and service users and address effectiveness, safety and patient experience. Quality standards mean that health and social care professionals can make decisions about care based on the latest evidence and best practice and people using services know what they can expect from health and social care providers.
