Clinical Guideline Toolkit

This toolkit contains the NHSGGC Clinical Guideline Framework and appendices.  This framework sets out how NHSGGC develops, reviews, approves and monitors clinical guidelines.  NHSGGC clinical guidelines exist to help us make decisions about appropriate and effective care for our patients.

Please note that it is not a requirement of Clinical Guideline Development to have the guideline formatted by Medical Illustration and Word remains the preferred format for draft guidelines. If needed, support from Medical Illustration may be sought to produce flowcharts, etc. or to make larger documents easier to navigate.
