Equality and Human Rights Consultation - NICE NG 115 - Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in Over 16s: Diagnosis and Management (Updates and Replaces CG101)

Consultation opened on 06 December 2018. Closing date 16 January 2019.


NICE guidance is designed and developed for the NHS in England and is therefore not automatically applicable to Northern Ireland. On 1 July 2006 the Department established links with NICE whereby all technology appraisals and clinical guidelines published from that date are locally reviewed for applicability to Northern Ireland and, where appropriate, are endorsed for implementation in health and social care. The local review does not reassess the clinical and cost evidence used by NICE in forming its advice. This link has ensured that Northern Ireland has access to up-to-date, independent, professional, evidence-based guidance on the value of health care interventions.


Consultation description

Guidance for the consultation can be found on the NICE Website

The HSC (SQSD) 03/13 circular provides details of the process for the endorsement, implementation, monitoring and assurance of NICE Clinical Guidelines in Northern Ireland

In order to meet the timescales set out in the circular, the closing date for responses is Wednesday 16th January 2019.

This Information will be used to inform the Equality Screening.
