Guidelines are key to modern health and medical practice. Their recommendations are evidence-based and cover a wide range of topics - managing specific conditions, use of medicines in different settings or services and interventions to improve health.
NICE has accredited the process used by British Society for Rheumatology to produce its clinical guidance.
Accreditation is valid for five years from February 2013.

We neither seek nor accept industry funding for any of our guidelines. They are supported through our general finances. Creating our guidelines is a major voluntary endeavour by members, patients and practitioners from primary care and other specialities. We are grateful to everyone for their strenuous efforts in producing them.
