Equality and Human Rights Consultation - NICE PH 51 - Contraceptive services for under 25s

Consultation opened on 03 May 2016. Closing date 13 June 2016.


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 is Monday 13th June 2016.

This Information will be used to inform the Equality Screening
