Annual Review - 2009/2010

Welcome to NICE's annual review 2009/10

This year, in line with our commitment to develop more environmentally-friendly practices and reduce printing costs, we’ve published our annual review online.

The menu on the left allows you to navigate through the different sections where you will find interviews and articles covering all the work we’ve been doing in 2009/10. Publishing online also gives us the opportunity to provide audio clips and lots of useful links to more information on our main website.

It has been a busy year and in addition to our guidance-producing work, many new projects and work streams have taken off, including NHS Evidence - a free online service that provides easy access to high quality clinical and non-clinical information about health and social care – and our new NICE Quality Standards.

This annual review provides a snapshot of NICE’s work, but for more information about our guidance, tools to help you use it, and details of how to get involved with what we do, check out the NICE website.

If you are interested in our financial statements, click on ‘annual report and accounts’ at the bottom of the left-hand menu.

NICE is supporting the current drive to reduce ineffective practice and cut costs in the NHS
