The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has not currently been asked to develop a quality standard on sudden cardiac arrest. NHS England is now responsible for commissioning quality standards relating to NHS services from NICE. We understand from NHS England that it currently has no plans to commission a quality standard on sudden cardiac arrest but that it is carrying out a prioritisation process for further quality standards to be referred in early 2014.
