Guidelines provides concise clinical guideline summaries of major primary and shared care guidelines for the UK. Additionally, European guidelines from some of the major independent professional bodies are also summarised and included.
Summaries of guidelines from NICE, SIGN, independent professional bodies, and expert-led working party groups are developed for use in clinical practice with appropriate permissions. All Guidelines summaries are reviewed and approved annually.
Summaries of NICE guidelines are developed using wording from the source document—with permission from NICE. When reading summaries of NICE guidelines refer to any relevant NICE Technology Appraisal guidance at nice.org.uk.

Getting your guideline published
Because a number of clinical areas are not covered by current national guidance, working party guidelines are also considered for inclusion in Guidelines. Working party guidelines are required to meet the following criteria:
- drawn up by a multidisciplinary group including at least one GP
- members of the group should be drawn from several geographical locations
- content of the guideline must be independent of, and not influenced by, commercial sponsorship of the working party
- represents a clinical area rather than a drug or class of drugs.
If you have produced, or are aware of, any guidelines not currently published by Guidelines, please contact the Editor.
