Following the successful delivery of its contract for the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), the work of the NICE Collaborating Centre for Social Care (NCCSC) has now been completed.
Over the five year period of the contract, the NCCSC developed 11 social care guidelines and supported the implementation of both the guidelines and social care quality standards.
NICE and SCIE will continue to work closely together to improve quality in the social care sector. SCIE has been commissioned by NICE to:
- raise awareness of new guideline topics, which NICE will continue to develop, and promote guideline committee opportunities
- disseminate and promote existing guidance
- continue the development of NICE/SCIE quick guides
