star this property answer text <p>In England, it is the responsibility of National Health Service commissioners to make decisions on individual treatments and methods of testing for urinary tract infections on the basis of the available evidence, taking into account guidance from the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) where available. NICE guidance is always evidence based, adhering to the latest clinical thinking and research to determine the best treatment for patients.</p><p> </p><p>The majority of large teaching hospitals in England do have specialist urology centres embedded within which provide effective assessment and management advice for people with urinary symptoms. Such centres have the advantage of the ability to check for a range of conditions, and are best placed to ensure an accurate diagnosis so that appropriate treatment can be offered.</p> more like this

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) makes recommendations for the National Health Service in England on the use of most new medicines through its technology appraisal programme and also operates a separate highly specialised technologies programme for the evaluation of very high cost drugs for the treatment of very small numbers of patients. NICE operates a topic selection process that includes consideration of individual topics against published criteria and engagement with stakeholders to determine whether topics are suitable for assessment by NICE and, if so, which programme is most appropriate.</p> more like this
