The insight community at NICE was set up in 2015 to provide opportunities for our audience to play a part in shaping our products and services
The community is made up of people who give us feedback on our products, services and communications. Their advice is invaluable. It helps us adapt the ways we work so that we provide the best service to as many people as possible
Last year, our insight community continued to grow. There are now almost 1,700 members representing audiences from across health and social care.
We have developed a web page for the community where members can see the outcomes of recent surveys and potential members can sign up to help with our regular research.
Our audience insight executive, Laura Delaney talks about some of the changes that have been brought about by her team in this blog.
NICE newsletters now reach just under 45,000 subscribers. The newsletter content varies from general nice news, updates for those working in primary care, through to medicines and prescribing alerts.
