NHS Evidence

A web-based service that provides easy access to high-quality clinical and non-clinical information about health and social care which, while freely accessible, is primarily aimed at health and social care professionals. NHS Evidence also accredits organisations to endorse developers of guidelines, including the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence centre for health technology evaluation (NICE CHTE), the NICE centre for clinical practice (CCP) and the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN).
