NICE Fellows are senior health and social care leaders who are ambassadors for the Institute at regional and national levels and among their professional groups and peers. Over the course of their three-year fellowship they are expected to build a network of influential professionals who will support NICE in the implementation of its guidance, driving up the quality of care delivered and encouraging the adoption of cost effective innovation into practice.
NICE Fellows have the opportunity to use their expertise to shape the Institute's guidance programmes and initiatives. For example, in developing support tools for specific pieces of guidance, or contributing to high-level discussions about issues of quality and leadership. As well as shaping guidance, being appointed a Fellow can support an individual's professional development.
Fellowships are awarded to senior professionals across health, public health and social care, such as trust directors, clinical and service directors, associate or deputy directors, consultants (medical and non-medical), policy managers, social care leaders, such as directors of adults' and children's services, directors/managers of residential care homes, senior academics and leaders of integrated services. In order to ensure wide opportunities for participation, Fellowships are non-renewable.
Fellows are supported in their role through a series of workshops, as well as an optional senior adviser from NICE. The Fellowship will also facilitate access to the expertise of the NICE teams.
NICE Fellows are expected to devote on average approximately 7.5 hours per month to Fellowship activities. Fellowships are unpaid and each applicant must therefore agree his or her application with his or her employer. NICE will, however, meet all reasonable expenses (e.g. travel, accommodation) incurred in the course of carrying out Fellowship activities.
We aim to recruit 10 Fellows per year.
Applications for the scheme will open again in Autumn 2014
