NICEimpact adult social care report published

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has published their latest impact report which shows how NICE guidance might be making a difference in priority areas of adult social care.

This is the latest impact report in a series, which looks at the data that is available, alongside information about outcomes and examples of our guidance being used in practice. It also looks at areas where more progress in local adult social care services is needed. You can access all of their impact reports on the NICE website.

Professor Gillian Leng, NICE’s Deputy Chief Executive and Director of Health and Social Care, has also published a blog in the Department of Health and Social Care newsletter where she shares her views on the new impact report.

The NICEimpact adult social care report references The NHS Benchmarking Network’s National Audit of Intermediate Care summary report and findings.

“Intermediate care works. The NHS Benchmarking Network’s National Audit of Intermediate Care found that 93% of people receiving these services in 2018 improved or maintained their independence.”
