The NICE guidance updates for April have been summarised below:
- NG 75 – covers the diagnosis and management of Lyme disease. This might require some GP education.
- NG96 – “ Care and support of people growing older with learning disabilities” This will have an impact on service planning and so commissioners from the CCG and LAs may wish to review current provision in light of this.
- This month, there’s also a variety of clinical guidelines which have been updated to include recent MHRA advice on sodium valproate in pregnancy.
