NICE reconsults on depression guidelines after experts warn of 'significant flaws'


Once , twice , three times and more. Second consultation is NOT unusual anymore for an establishment like NICE. Don't tell me there is nothing fundamentally wrong of how they 'work out' guidances . On top of that , is the question how much taxpayers' money being spent for their 'activities' to finish the end product. We already have had enough with regulatory bodies like GMC , CQC etc. NICE needs to think seriously how it should conduct itself . And the argument of NICE guidelines are only 'guidelines' is not sustainable as the court and legal system always consider them as references for the 'right' treatments patients entitled for . Call this a ranting.......
