The article presents Great Britain's guidelines for the management of acute pancreatitis. The guidelines contain revised recommendations and audit standards. Some of the recommendations are: the correct diagnosis of acute pancreatitis should be made in all patients within 48 hours of admission; the etiology of acute pancreatitis should be determined in at least 80% of cases and no more than 20% should be classified as idiopathic; although amylase is widely available and provides acceptable accuracy of diagnosis, where lipase estimation is available it is preferred for the diagnosis of acute pancreatitis.
