Get involved in the development of NICE commissioning guides
NICE considers it important to involve commissioners and end-users in the development of the commissioning guides in order to ensure that these guides meet their needs.
We are keen to receive expressions of interest from primary care trust and practice-based commissioners, general practitioners and others involved in the commissioning of services in England, who are willing and able to take up membership of a national Commissioner Reference Panel.
The purpose of this advisory panel is to provide a pool of people with commissioning expertise from whom NICE can seek advice on:
- specific commissioning issues
- suitable topics for commissioning guides
- the content and development of individual commissioning guides.
The latter involves attending one meeting of a Topic-specific Advisory Group (comprising commissioners and clinical experts), and subsequent email consultation. Meetings are normally held in Manchester or London. A member of the Commissioner Reference Panel would be asked to contribute to the development of no more than two commissioning guides per year.
If you are interested, please complete, sign and return BY POST the attached application form and advisory body monitoring form to:
National Institute for Health and Care Excellence
Level 1A, City Tower
Successful applications will be acknowledged and membership confirmed within 2 weeks of receipt.
If you have any queries about the application process, please email the commissioning team at firstname.lastname@example.org
