Public Health England (PHE) has convened an expert group, chaired by Professor John Strang, to consider the responses to the consultation on a possible update to the United Kingdom guidelines on the clinical management of drug misuse and dependence.

PHE will be providing an update on the plans of the expert group in winter 2014-15 following its initial meeting on 7 October 2014. The expert group plans to complete its advice to PHE and the devolved administrations by early 2016.
