The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) develops its guidance independently, in line with its established methods and processes, which have been developed through extensive engagement with interested parties. In developing its guidance, the NICE takes into account all physical and mental health-related costs and benefits including, where relevant, the health-related benefits to carers and the wider family.
