Clinical policies, pathways, and prescribing guidance

The clinical policies, pathways & prescribing guidance found on this website - have been developed through the NHS Hertfordshire and west Essex Integrated Care Board’s (HWE ICB) governance structures.


The documents and guidance on this website are believed to be an accurate reflection of the clinical evidence, medical literature, and practices at the time of preparation.

This guidance represents the views of HWE ICB, reached at a point in time and after careful consideration of the evidence available. Healthcare professionals are expected to take it into account when exercising their clinical judgement, however, this guidance does not override the individual responsibility of healthcare professionals to make decisions appropriate to the circumstances of the individual patient, in consultation with the patient and/or guardian or carer.
