About NICE

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) is the independent body responsible for driving improvement and excellence in the health and social care system. We develop guidance, standards and information on high-quality health and social care. We also advise on ways to promote healthy living and prevent ill health.

Our aim is to help practitioners deliver the best possible care and give people the most effective treatments, which are based on the most up-to-date evidence and provide value for money, in order to reduce inequalities and variation.

Our products and resources are produced for the NHS, local authorities, care providers, charities, and anyone who has a responsibility for commissioning or providing healthcare, public health or social care services.

We request that no more than 2 members of the same organisation attend per session.

Please note that numbers are limited, and if oversubscribed we may have to add you to a waiting list.

Nottinghamshire Safeguarding Adults Board reserves the right to cancel any booking it feels does not meet the registration criteria. In this event, we will contact you to explain our decision.
