Since this edition of NICE Bites was published, NICE has removed the recommendations on diagnosing and managing high blood prefer and instead refers to the NICE guideline on hypertension in adults (NICE NG136). Please go to to check for any further updates to the guideline.

NICE Bites is a monthly bulletin from the North West Medicines Information Centre that summarises key prescribing points from NICE guidance. This edition includes one topic: Type 2 diabetes (NICE NG28). It covers monitoring, pharmacological treatment including use of insulin and oral agents.
