Making health and social care services work better, for everyone

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) produces guidance on the most effective ways to prevent, diagnose and treat disease and ill health, and provide social care support. Their guidance is based on research evidence and takes into account the views of people working in or using relevant services, and other stakeholder groups.

NICE are currently looking for additional lay members to join the committee:

  • 1 parent or carer of a child who used NHS healthcare services when the child was aged 1 to 6

  • 1 young person (aged 16 and above) with significant experience of NHS healthcare services as a child

See recruitment advert for details of what working with the committee involves, the kind of experience and knowledge they are looking for, and how to apply. Recruitment is open until 5pm on 25 February 2019.

NICE would welcome an application from those who have recent experience or knowledge of this topic and are able to reflect the views, experiences and needs of the public to ensure they are included in the development of this guideline. They need to be able to contribute effectively in a formal committee setting. Lay members are paid a fee to attend meetings and travel and other expenses are covered.
