Equality and Human Rights Consultation - NICE NG63 - Sexually Transmitted Infections: Condom Distribution Schemes

Consultation opened on 06 April 2017. Closing date 17 May 2017.


NICE guidance is designed and developed for the NHS in England and is therefore not automatically applicable to Northern Ireland. Guidance is locally reviewed for applicability to Northern Ireland and, where appropriate, is 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. The Department’s link with NICE 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) 37/15 circular provides details of the process for the endorsement, implementation, monitoring and assurance of NICE Public Health Guidelines in Northern Ireland.

In order to meet the timescales set out in the circular, the closing date for responses Wednesday 17 May 2017. 

This will inform the Equality Screening
