For the first time, you can access guidance from NICE whilst on the move through NICE’s new, official app. It is aimed at doctors, nurses, medical students and other healthcare professionals, as well as those with public health responsibilities, including in local government.

It is the first ever app to contain public health guidance, including topics such as smoking cessation, promoting physical activity, behaviour change and preventing diabetes. It contains all of NICE’s clinical guidelines, including those on COPD, hypertension, stroke, chronic heart failure, atrial fibrillation, head injury, depression, ovarian cancer, UTI in children, anxiety and autism. It also contains all NICE’s technology appraisals, interventional procedures guidance, medical technology and diagnostics guidance.

    I'm disappointed. I've used this app for years. Since the update the app doesn't work, exactly the same issue like others have reported on here. Please FIX IT soon or I'll directly enquiry about this problem to NICE.

    Perfect until the update. Now it says "Unfortunately Guidance has stopped" every time I try t use it. I've reinstalled it but it still says the same thing

    On Android 4.04 and Samsung Note 1. Updated and now only get splash screen then blank/white screen. Nothing. Zilch. Having completely trashed the BNF for me the developers have trashed this also. As wireless network in my trust is abysmal I can't even use the web to access these. NHS IT is a scandal. This is the icing on the cake - basic information resources unusable

    We follow many NICE CPGs in our hospital. But I downloaded the app. 3 times....and it does not open. It gives a message: "Error: failed to write a guidance document"...and when I press the Retry button it does work and repeats the message. Please fix dear NICE technical support...this app is needed. I don't know which is the official NICE app....because I downloaded another app titled 'NICE GUID
