Guideline development groups

A guideline development group (GDG) is a group of healthcare professionals and consumers with expertise and experience relevant to the guideline topic.  Opportunities for joining NICE guideline development groups are advertised on the NICE website during the guideline scoping process.  The Public Involvement Programme (PIP) team at NICE supports the National Collaborating Centre for Women's and Children's Health in recruiting consumers (lay members) to guideline development groups.
