Consultation of our guidelines in draft form is an important step in our process.
Consultation is open to all and provides an opportunity for health care professionals, patients, health service managers, and other interested groups to comment on the draft recommendations and to influence the final form of the guideline.
Comments received during consultation are compiled in a report and discussed by the guideline development group. Each point must be addressed and any changes to the guideline as a result noted or, if no change is made, the reasons for this recorded.
The consultation report is made available on the SIGN website when the guideline is published.
There are currently no guidelines available for consultation.
