The recommendations in this guideline represent the view of NICE, arrived at after carefulconsideration of the evidence available. When exercising their judgement, professionals andpractitioners are expected to take this guideline fully into account, alongside the individual needs,preferences and values of their patients or the people using their service. It is not mandatory toapply the recommendations, and the guideline does not override the responsibility to makedecisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual, in consultation with them and theirfamilies and carers or guardian.

Local commissioners and providers of healthcare have a responsibility to enable the guideline to beapplied when individual professionals and people using services wish to use it.
