National Institute for Clinical Excellence
The National Institute for Clinical Excellence or NICE is an agency of the National Health Service in the United Kingdom. It was set up in 1999 to defuse the postcode lottery system of healthcare in England and Wales, where treatments that were available depended upon which NHS Trust area you lived in. It publishes clinical appraisals, of whether particular treatments should be considered worthwhile by the NHS (cost effective).
