Public involvement

Our guidance relies on the real life experiences of people who use health and social care services.

This makes sure it's relevant to the people that matter. Being a part of our public involvement programme can help you:

  • get involved in the development of our guidance and advice
  • see how people have made an impact on our guidance
  • learn more about our public involvement work.

Visit our public involvement page.

Being able to contribute to the Public Involvement Programme at NICE is vital for disabled people and their informal carers, as it is only in this way that we can effectively shape processes and services to be truly person-centred”
