Help develop the NICE guideline on babies, children and young people's experience of healthcare

19/02/2019

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.

They 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

 

NICE welcome applications 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. Applicants need to be able to contribute effectively in a formal committee setting. NICE lay members are paid a fee to attend meetings and travel and other expenses are also covered.

 

For more information contact: PIPrecruitment@nice.org.uk or 0161 870 3020.
