NICE Quality Standard on Child Abuse and Neglect Following consultation we agreed to formally support the NICE Quality Standard on Child Abuse and Neglect The NICE Quality Standard for Child Abuse and Neglect covers recognising, assessing and responding to abuse and neglect of children and young people under 18. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement. It is for commissioners, service providers, health, public health and social care practitioners, and the public. NICE invited comments from registered stakeholders including the Association on the draft quality standard. Full details of our consultation response is available here.
