Hello   All

National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence seeks new members for its independent advisory committees on the use of health technologies
 

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) is recruiting members to join its four independent advisory Appraisal Committees. The Appraisal Committees consider and interpret evidence on the clinical and cost effectiveness of health technologies and formulates recommendations on their use.

 

Members of all Committees are drawn from the NHS, healthcare professionals, patients and carers, and the academic world. Committee members are not appointed to act as representatives of a particular organisation. They will be expected to apply the experience and judgement from their individual backgrounds to the topics considered by the Committee and in doing so actively contribute to improving the quality and consistency of care provided by the NHS. They will be hel ping the Institute make some of the most difficult decisions in public life.

 

We currently have vacancies for Committee members in the following categories

         Public Health Physician

         Investigational Physician (e.g. radiologist, heamatologist)

         Health Economist

         Consultant Physician

Applicants must be prepared to be based in either Manchester or London

TIME COMMITTEMENTS AND CONDITIONS

 

Committee members attend eleven day-long committee meetings per year as well as an annual Away day.  In addition, Committee members will need to be able to deal in a timely manner with the reading of substantial Committee documents as well as helping with the production of consultation documents.  Appraisal Committee meetings are held at the NICE offices either in central London or Manchester, and dates are fixed and made available to Committee members up to a year in advance.  Committee membership is unpaid although expenses, including overnight accommodation, are reimbursed.  The period of Committee membership is for three years in the first instance.
