NICE Implementation Collaborative
As a partner in the NIC collaborative, the Academy worked with others to understand and analyse the barriers that exist to the implementation of NICE recommendations including local affordability, and the responsibility of Clinical Commissioning Groups to appropriately prioritise care to the requirements of their populations.
The NIC was a unique partnership of members committed to working together to support a system where patients have faster and more consistent access to NICE-recommended medicines, treatments and technologies. The signing of the NIC concordat by all its partners was the very first time that the NHS and it's stakeholders have come together to work in this way.
You can download the Concordat on the right hand side of this page.
The NIC engaged in four pilots to help partners better understand the barriers to implementation of NICE recommendations.
You can download information on the following pilot studies on the right hand side of this page.
Pilot 1 - Denosumab for post-menopausal women with osteoporosis
Pilot 2 - Novel Oral Anti-coagulants for prevention of stroke in patients with atrial fibrillation
Pilot 3 - Insulin pumps in type I diabetes mellitus
Pilot 4 - Natriuretic peptide testing in heart failure
