NICE are currently looking for members of the public (usually referred to as ‘lay members’) to join the interventional procedures advisory committee who will help to develop and update NICE guidance on a range of different procedures used for diagnosis or treatment.
Who they're looking for
People with an understanding of the issues important to patients, people using services, unpaid carers, communities and the public when considering having an interventional procedure. This understanding could have been gained:
- through personal experience of treatment and care provided for you by the NHS
- as a relative or unpaid carer of someone who has used relevant health services
- as an advocate, volunteer, or officer of a relevant voluntary organisation or support group.
More information about the interventional procedures advisory committee and its current members is available from the NICE website.
