Must commissioners implement NICE guidelines?

What does Rose v Thanet Clinical Commissioning Group tell us about the status of NICE guidelines in priority setting? Healthcare lawyer Jane Williams looks at Rose where the Administrative Court considered whether a CCG had acted unlawfully in failing to implement National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidance even though it was under no statutory obligation to do so. 

If your CCG has any queries on priority setting policies or individual funding requests please do not hesitate to contact Jane Williams.
