NICE are currently recruiting for standing members to join their Indicators Advisory Committee (IAC) to help drive quality improvement across
health and social care. They are looking to appoint a number of standing members with the following backgrounds/expertise:
- GP x2 - applications are welcomed from GPs at the early stages of their career.
- Practice Nurse
- Commissioner / Senior NHS Manager
- Measurement expert
This advisory committee primarily relates to general practice and they are looking for 2 GPs. They would also like a health care practitioner who is an expert in outcome measurements.
This may be of interest to our members as there may be potential to promote GI outcome measures in primary care.
The NICE Indicator Advisory Committee is a multidisciplinary group that works with NICE to develop indicators for a range of purposes including for potential use in the Quality and Outcomes Framework (QOF) and other national measurement frameworks including the CCG Outcomes Indicator Set (CCG OIS).
The committee membership includes a diverse range of professionals including GPs, hospital consultants, nurses, practice managers, lay members, academics, senior NHS managers, public health and social care professionals. The committee has a diverse work programme potentially covering the breadth of NICE’s outputs.
We are looking for individuals with both an interest in measurement and are comfortable working across a range of topics.
Members do not represent particular organisations, but are recruited as individual members with specific expertise and interests.
Meetings are held in central Manchester. The time commitment for face-to-face meetings is approximately 6 days per year, committee members are expected to read papers in advance of the meeting and work outside of the meetings to providing expert advice to the NICE team.
