NICE is here to help those working in the NHS, local authorities and the wider community deliver high-quality healthcare.

National Institute of Clinical Excellence

We help our clients engage with NICE to introduce their new technology

NICE develop evidence-based guidelines on the most effective ways to diagnose, treat and prevent disease and ill health. Patient-friendly versions of their guidelines can help educate and empower patients, carers and the public to take an active role in managing their conditions; setting standards for high-quality care.

NICE are developing a library of 150 quality standards that will set out a vision of what high-quality care should look like on the NHS. These standards, broken down by a specific disease, condition or clinical area, will indicate when a treatment or procedure is considered highly effective, cost effective and safe, as well as being viewed as a positive experience by patients.

Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme

The Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme (MTEP) selects and evaluates new or innovative medical technologies (including devices and diagnostics). The programme complements and operates in conjunction with NICE's technology appraisal capacity, which evaluates new pharmaceutical and biotechnology products. MTEP helps the NHS adopt efficient and cost effective medical devices and diagnostics more rapidly and consistently.

The types of products which might be evaluated are medical devices that deliver treatment such as those implanted during surgical procedures; technologies that give greater independence to patients; and diagnostic devices or tests used to detect or monitor medical conditions.

The Medical Technologies Advisory Committee (MTAC) has two separate functions.

Medical Technologies Advisory Committee (MTAC)

The Committee is comprised of 25 independent specialists with a broad range of medical technology and evaluation expertise. It is chaired by Professor Bruce Campbell, who has been the Chair of NICE's Interventional Procedures Advisory Committee since 2002 and has extensive experience of NICE's evaluation processes and guidance production.

Process and methods guides

Technologies notified to the Medical Technologies Evaluation Programme are selected and routed, and guidance produced, in accordance with the programme process and methods guides.
