NICE Quality Standards 


The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is an NHS organisation that provides a range of different guidance and recommendations to the NHS on high quality care. NICE has now developed a Quality Standard for Diabetes in Adults, containing 13 Quality Statements.


The Standards are aimed at patients, those planning, purchasing and monitoring services; and those delivering and providing them.

Their purpose is to define high quality care and be used to:

  • inform the planning of services
  • provide people with information about what care they should expect to receive
  • support healthcare professionals to provide evidenced based care.
  • support the assessment of existing services and how they can be improved.


The government has identified that the Standards will have a significant role in informing the planning and delivery of high quality care in England.  The 13 NICE Standards  can be  seen on their website.  A quality standards information document for patients can be downloaded here
