It is recommended that guidance is developed collaboratively with multidisciplinary, cross-sector and multiagency involvement. A suggested working group membership is given in the CGC.
- Guidance style
All guidance will be transposed onto the TAM software templates, including in-house flowcharts. Simply prepared guidance is appropriate, such as Word/PowerPoint, and it should remain editable.

Guidance is to be finalised within the relevant Department prior to submission as per the approval section of the CGC. The TAM subgroup will not accept or comment on draft guidance.
Submit the finalised guidance and its completed CGC to firstname.lastname@example.org
- TAM subgroup responses
The subgroup will advise the Lead Author:
- ACCEPTANCE: Guidance is suitable for uploading to TAM.
- ACCEPTANCE PENDING: minor amendments will be suggested – Guidance can be published after these have been actioned. No further submission required.
- REJECTION: major amendments will be suggested - Guidance to be resubmitted.
- Guidance upload to TAM
Accepted guidance is uploaded onto TAM and the Lead Author notified to accuracy check the transcription.
- Guidance review
The TAM team will contact the Lead Author 6, 3 and 1 month before a guideline is due for review. If there is no timely response the request will be escalated to the Clinical Lead. If the guidance is allowed to remain out of date it will be discussed at the next TAM subgroup whether it should be removed, or further action recommended.
