AECB News : AECB Response: NICE (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence): Excess winter deaths and illnesses – guideline consultation
NICE is developing public health guidelines on excess winter deaths and illnesses: identifying and supporting vulnerable children and older people. All registered stakeholders for this public health guidance were invited to comment on the provisional recommendations during a 6 week consultation with stakeholders. The guideline makes recommendations on how to reduce the risk of death and ill health associated with living in a cold home.
