No such discussions have taken place.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) published a clinical guideline on Urinary tract infection in under 16s: diagnosis and management (CG54) in August 2007. NICE has also published Quality Standards on Urinary tract infection in children and young people (QS36) in July 2013 and Urinary tract infections in adults (QS90) in June 2015.

NICE periodically reviews its technology appraisal methods and processes to ensure that they remain appropriate in the light of wider developments.
