National Clinical Guideline Centre

The National Clinical Guidelines Centre (NCGC) is commissioned by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) to produce clinical practice guidelines.

The NCGC was formed in 2009 by a merger of the National Collaborating Centres for Acute Care, Chronic Conditions, Primary Care and Nursing and Supportive Care. It is funded by NICE.

The NCGC is hosted by the Royal College of Physicians and governance is provided by a board with representatives from the four Royal Colleges who hosted the original centres

  • the RCGP
  • the Royal College of Nursing
  • the Royal College of Surgeons
  • the Royal College of Physicians.

The NCGC is a great opportunity for GPs to have more involvement across a wider spectrum of guideline topics and work more closely with secondary care colleagues. You are encouraged to contribute to the guideline development process in terms of representation, commenting on draft guidance and involvement in implementation.
