About NICE

NICE helps practitioners and commissioners get the best care to people, fast, while ensuring value for the taxpayer.

We do this by:

  • producing useful and useable guidance for health and care practitioners
  • providing rigorous, independent assessment of complex evidence for new health technologies
  • developing recommendations that focus on what matters most and drive innovation into the hands of health and care practitioners
  • encouraging the uptake of best practice to improve outcomes for everyone.

What are our priorities at NICE?

NICE is a world-class organisation based on independence, transparency and rigour – and that remains our foundation. However, the world around us is changing and requires us to transform in 3 ways to help practitioners and commissioners get the best care to patients fast and ensure value for the taxpayer.

We will do this by:

  • focussing on what matters by working with system partners to identify where NICE advice can make the biggest difference and focussing our efforts there
  • creating useful and useable advice by ensuring our advice is timely, easy to find and in an accessible format – getting the right information, to the right people, at the right time
  • being part of a system that continually learns from data and implementation by continually collecting and using real world data to actively shape and improve the health and care system.
