Mandatory requests from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)

Section 255 of the Health and Social Care Act enables the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) to make a request to HSCIC (now known as NHS Digital) on matters concerning the provision of health services or adult social care. NICE can request that NHS Digital put in place systems to collect and analyse information. This is known as a mandatory request as NHS Digital must comply unless we consider the request relates to information that is prescribed in regulations. No such regulations have been made as yet.
