The College is delighted to support the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence's celebration of 20 years of evidence-based decision making.

The College is a committed stakeholder to the development of NICE objectives and its guidance programme. Our role is to represent the pathology specialties of our members by contributing to NICE consultations.

The College is proud to have held NICE accreditation since 2012 for developing clinical guidelines.

In celebration of NICE's anniversary, we have developed the following infographic.

All College guidelines produced following the accredited process bear the NICE accreditation mark. These include cancer datasets, tissue pathways, autopsy guidelines and specialty-specific guidelines. The NICE accreditation mark helps users identify trusted guidelines that have been developed using a critically evaluated high-quality process.
