NICE work programme revised

Following the publication of the Public Health White paper – Healthy Lives Healthy People, the Department of Health (DH) have changed the scope of the NICE work programme and the guidance it produces.

DH have removed six topics which previously fell under the NICE remit and two of these relate to injury prevention on the roads:

  • Preventing unintentional road injuries among under 15s: education and protective equipment
  • Preventing unintentional road injuries among young people aged 15 to 24

NICE will continue to make available the guidance published previously on this topic.
