Nice | Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease NAFLD

This is a new guideline from NICE on non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in children, young people and adults.

To be honest, I don’t think this guideline is terribly helpful. I’ve done a brief summary, then more detailed notes. In summary:

Adults

There is no advice on who to test to diagnose NAFLD, nor what tests to use in diagnosis. Once diagnosed, there should be an assessment for ‘advanced liver fibrosis’. NICE advises using the ‘enhanced liver fibrosis test’ to do this. People scoring highly will need specialist referral. Others will need retesting regularly.

"I started using LocumDeck as one of our locums used it. It was easy to see her availability and when bookings are made I get confirmation of the booking and can view them on the calendar too. When invoices are sent, I can see it on the site, and digitally sign the pension form (this is one of the best bits!). It would be good if all locums used it, as then it would be so much easier for me to track my bookings and check their availability without emailing or texting them, waiting for a reply and then emailing back to confirm. It’s a great place for their documents to sit also. I can access it from home or my mobile which is useful as when I am not in surgery is when I usually need a locum!"
