NICE: Standing member recruitment to the Quality Standards Advisory Committee (QSAC)

Dear colleagues,

NICE is currently recruiting for additional members to join their Quality Standards Advisory Committee (QSAC) to support delivery of the library quality standards topics. NICE quality standards are a set of concise, prioritised statements and associated measures that focus on topics relevant to health and/or social care. Quality standards describe high-priority areas for quality improvement in a defined care or service area.

We are looking to appoint a number of standing members with the following backgrounds/expertise:

  • Secondary care practitioners - For example doctors, nurses, or allied health professionals, in secondary care.
  • Public health practitioner - For example those from local authorities, and PHE regional teams.
  • Commissioners of health, public health and social care services - For example those from clinical commissioning groups or local authorities and those with experience of service redesign to improve quality and outcomes for people with care and support needs.
  • Safety expert - For example people who take a lead in addressing issues of relating to risk and safety, for example risk managers and safeguarding leads
  • Lay member

NICE’s quality standards are central to supporting the Government's vision for a health and social care system focused on delivering the best possible outcomes for people who use services. Derived from NICE guidance and other accredited sources, they are a concise set of prioritised statements designed to drive measurable quality improvements within a particular area of health or care and are becoming the backbone of the new commissioning system for health and social care.

If you have an interest in driving quality improvement in health, public health or social care, experience of working on committees and working groups, and highly developed interpersonal, communication and team working skills, then NICE would like to hear from you.

You will not be representing your organisation but will bring your expertise, experience and knowledge of current practice. The time commitment is one day a month, for a three year period, and your expenses will be reimbursed (if you are a general practitioner, locum cover will be covered).

More information on how to apply can be found at www.nice.org.uk/get-involved/join-a-committee and information on NICE quality standards at www.nice.org.uk/standards-and-indicators.

You can also contact Rachel Neary-Jones at NICE on rachel.neary-jones@nice.org.uk

The closing date for applications is 5pm Monday 15 January 2018.

Kind Regards,
