NICE Guidelines


The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is the organisation responsible for providing guidance on treatment and prevention of ill health in England and Wales.

In November 2005 NICE published the guidelines for the management and treatment of OCD and BDD for people working within the NHS. The recommendations were developed by experts, patients and carers, and are based on the best evidence available on the condition.

The NICE guidelines cover diagnosis, treatment, care, and self help for OCD and BDD. They provide information on the care you can expect to receive from you GP and other healthcare professionals in addition to details of the treatments you available to you.

It is possible to access these guidelines on the NICE website and searching “obsessive compulsive disorder”: Look out for the version for people with OCD and their families.
