On this page you will find all our current recommendations, initially sorted by published date. The table headings are active links that will sort the information in ascending or descending order. Please note that all our recommendations are valid unless they are superseded by NICE or national guidance.

If you are a healthcare professional working with the GM region and would like to submit information for a recommendation to be reviewed then please contact the professional secretary to the group.

Please note that the new drug recommendations no longer contain a review date as they will be reviewed as and when substantial new evidence that may change the original recommendation becomes available. This will be highlighted through regular horizon scanning activities. All previous review dates on old recommendations are invalid as they will also be reviewed as outlined. In addition if a NICE TA is published then the new drug recommendation will be superseded by the NICE TA – these recommendations will be moved to the archive recommendation section of the website within 90 days of the NICE TA being issued.
