Speciality Registrar, Public Health, Oxford Deanery
Thames Valley Health Protection Unit
Mohit Sharma is a third year Specialty Registrar in Public Health in the Oxford Deanery. After completing surgical training with MS (University of Mumbai) and MRCS (Glasgow) and a wide clinical surgical experience, he won a place on the Public Health Training Programme. Projects in Public Health have involved facilitating engagement between commissioners (Primary Care Trusts) and NICE through the Commissioning Support, Appraisals Service. He has also worked with the Priorities Support Unit to support local and regional priority setting in South Central England.
As a NICE scholar, Mohit will work with NICE and commissioners to promote engagement of commissioners in the formulation of NICE guidance. This will involve the consideration of current arrangements to identify what works well and to build upon this experience to ensure engagement with future commissioners for the benefit of patients. He will be supported in this by Dr Don Sinclair. Mohit believes that this engagement is critical to ensuring that NICE guidance results in improvements to clinical practice for best patient outcomes and optimal resource use across the NHS.
