Use the personal author(s) or editor(s) if listed on the report, otherwise use the group author name.

In text citations


First citation:
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE, 2020) state that......
...(National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), 2020).

Subsequent citations:

NICE (2020) acknowledge that....
...(NICE, 2020). 

Note: A good tip if you are going to use the same citation a few times in your assignment is to use acronyms.  You must explain the acronym in full the first time you use it, followed by the acronym so it is clear to your lecturer what the abbreviation stands for.
