NICE Clinical Guideline NG158 - Venous thromboembolic diseases: diagnosis, management and thrombophilia testing

Consultation opened on 28 June 2021. Closing date 06 August 2021.


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
