Clinical Tools

On the 31st of January 2024, NICE updated its NG51 guideline for the UK originally published in 2016. The updates predominantly centred around the use of the National Early Warning Score (NEWS2) and recommendations around the timing of antibiotics made by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges in 2022.

Updated for 2024 and designed by our panel of expert clinicians in consultation with NICE, our new suite of clinical tools reflects the latest updates to NG51 and can now be implemented into clinical practice across the spectrum of healthcare. They aim to provide the optimum balance between saving lives from sepsis and a responsible approach to antimicrobial stewardship. These new tools can be used alongside our additional resources and e-learning programme.
