It has, however, held a number of engagement events with representatives of patients and health professionals in relation to this policy.</p><p>The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has been commissioned to update and replace interim clinical guidelines on the prescribing of cannabis-based products for medicinal use by October 2019. NICE has consulted with a wide range of stakeholders on the draft scope of the guidelines, including a stakeholder workshop held on 6 November 2018, which was attended by patient and health professional organisations. NICE is expected to issue a public consultation on draft guidelines, which will commence in summer 2019. Anyone interested in this topic, who wants to be involved in the consultation process, can register as a stakeholder at www.nice.org.uk by searching “GID-NG10124”.</p> more like this
