Process and methods
3 Role of the Vice Chair of NICE
The Vice Chair of NICE is responsible for determining the arguability and validity of each of the appeal points lodged and will decide if an appeal (oral or written) will be held. In doing so, he or she may take legal advice.
In the absence of the Vice Chair, or where the Vice Chair is conflicted, the Chair of the Board will nominate an alternative Non-Executive Director to act as the Vice Chair in respect of appeals.
