NICE - Endorsed Clinical Guidelines 2019/2020

It is important to note that the advice contained within the guidance does not override or replace the individual responsibility of health professionals to make appropriate decisions in the circumstances of their individual patients, in consultation with the patient and/or guardian or carer. This would, for example, include situations where individual patients have other conditions or complications that need to be taken into account in determining whether the NICE guidance is fully appropriate in their case. Clinical guidelines frequently make reference to specific legislation and guidance that do not apply in Northern Ireland. All clinical guidelines should be read taking these differences into consideration. The following NICE clinical guidelines have been endorsed during 2019/2020
