This chapter discusses the NICE and NSFs. NICE was established in April 1999 to increase efficiency in the National Health Service's (NHS) uptake of interventions that are both clinically and cost-effective; encourage more equitable access to healthcare; provide better and more rational use of available resources by focussing the provision of health care on the most cost-effective interventions; and encourage the creation of new and innovative technologies. NSFs were established at the same time as NICE as a complementary process to establish national standards and guidelines. NSFs are long-term strategies for improving specific areas of care to help ensure consistent access to services and quality of care right across the UK.
