NICE’s Assessing Resource Impact Process Manual

NICE’s Assessing resource impact process manual has been updated following an open consultation. The updates provide clearer information to stakeholders so that health and care services can plan for and implement guidance. The manual describes the processes followed to estimate the resource impact of NICE guidance ensuring the assessments meet the identified needs of end users.

The new manual streamlines and rationalises the previous two process manuals for guidelines and Technical appraisals and Highly specialised technologies, into one “easy to use” manual. It describes processes for assessing resource impact for medical and diagnostic technologies not included in the previous manuals.
