Response to NICE regarding the draft Safe Prescribing and Withdrawal Guideline

APPG Chair Danny Kruger MP, and co-chair Lord Crisp have written to Dr Paul Chrisp, Director of the Centre for Guidelines in response to the draft Safe Prescribing and Withdrawal Guideline. They express concerns that the withdrawal management sections of the draft guideline do not currently provide the basic information about tapering to enable patients to withdraw safely.

These concerns were echoed in a Statement of Support, also sent to NICE, signed by all the current dedicated UK withdrawal services, the International Institute for Psychiatric Drug Withdrawal (IIPDW) and key psychological therapy bodies.
