National Open Meetings

This is a one day conference, where the guideline development group discuss the draft guideline with health and social care staff, patients, carers and members of the public.   If you are unable to attend the meeting, you can still comment as the draft guideline will be available on our website.

Peer Review of Guidelines

All our guidelines are independently reviewed by an expert panel of peer reviewers before they are published. We ask reviewers to comment on the accuracy of the guideline and to suggest improvements.

The draft guideline is also sent to lay reviewers to make sure that it has considered issues that are important to patients and carers. Lay reviewers don’t need to address every aspect of the guideline, but to comment on the areas where they feel their expertise is most relevant.
