Developing new NICE Guidelines for Adult Social Care

NICE

I’m privileged to be chairing the newly formed committee that will develop NICE guidelines on improving the experience of people using adult social care services, in conjunction with the NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care.  The guidelines will make evidence-based recommendations on how to improve adults’ experiences of social care services; these will apply to all settings where care is delivered (people’s own homes, residential care and community settings).

For people who use social care, the way in which it is delivered – how we experience it – can make the difference between just existing from day to day and living as full a life as possible. That’s why I am looking forward to helping those who deliver social care and those who use it to understand what good looks like and what we can expect.

The scope of the project has been finalised and we are now calling for evidence until 30 March 2016. So watch this space!
