This guideline was developed by the NICE Medicines and Prescribing Centre. The Centre worked with a Guideline Development Group, comprising healthcare professionals (including consultants, GPs and nurses), patients and carers, and technical staff, which reviewed the evidence and drafted the recommendations. The recommendations were finalised after public consultation. The methods and processes for developing NICE clinical guidelines are described in the guidelines manual. NICE produces guidance, standards and information on commissioning and providing high‑quality healthcare, social care, and public health services. NICE guidance or other products may include references to organisations or people responsible for commissioning or providing care that may be relevant only to England.
