Scottish Briefings on NICE Public Health Guidance

Scottish Briefings on NICE public health guidance: Note – these were undertaken during 2006 – 2011 but are no longer automatically produced as a Scottish resource. NICE guidelines are now used and promoted as published by NICE.

NICE public health guidance is produced for health professionals in England by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE). NHS Health Scotland produced a series of Briefings from 2006-2011 on relevant NICE guidance.

This involved consideration of the evidence cited and the recommendations presented in the NICE Guidance, in the context of policy and practice in Scotland.

Scottish Briefings, or previously-produced Scottish Perspectives, NHS Health Scotland Commentaries or NHS Health Scotland Statements, are currently available on the following NICE guidance.
