NICE Covid-19 rapid guidelines

NICE have a section of their website dedicated to new rapid guidelines and evidence summaries. The most important of these to the rare disease community is the guideline on critical care in adults. This was updated following contact from Genetic Alliance UK to clarify that the Clinical Frailty Scale is not appropriate for people below 65 years of age, or in those with stable long term disabilities or learning disabilities.

There are also rapid guidelines on bone marrow transplantation, and on rheumatological autoimmune, inflammatory and metabolic bone disorders.
