NICE Public Health Guideline NG209 - Tobacco: preventing uptake, promoting quitting and treating dependence

Consultation opened on 10 August 2022. Closing date 20 September 2022.


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) 15/22 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 Tuesday 20 September 2022.

This Information will be used to inform the Equality Screening.
