Trainees: NICE Summary Guidelines

Members of the trainees committee regularly scan the NICE guideline website to identify new and updated publications, focusing on their impact on laboratory medicine. Below are a list of the summaries that have been produced so far and are available to download. These summaries have been reviewed for scientific content by more senior members of the profession, preferably at consultant level. NB. Summaries that have not been reviewed are in the archive section on the left hand side of this page.

If you would like to contribute and complete a NICE guideline summary, please contact either Rebecca Hopkins or Emma Ashley in the first instance via the 'Contact Us' link at the top right hand corner of this page. Otherwise, requests for interest will be emailed to trainees via the ACB office approximately three times a year.
