GPs and nurses are being offered the opportunity to work with NICE to help develop their guidance as part of the Institute's fellows and scholars programme.

The programme is designed to create opportunities for NHS staff to undertake projects and work with the Institute to improve the quality of care within their local health communities.

A wide range of staff, including public health and allied health professionals, doctors, nurses, and health service managers, are encouraged to apply.

Professor Peter Littlejohns, clinical and public health director at NICE, said: ‘Frontline staff make a huge contribution to developing NICE guidance, and the report High Quality Care for All recognised the value staff place on opportunities to work with NICE. 

‘We have therefore expanded those chances by establishing the new fellows and scholars programme. Aimed at staff who are both leaders in their field and at the start of their careers, we hope to further use their invaluable expertise, experience and skills and present them with more chances to work with us.'

NICE will award 10 fellowships, which will run for three years, this year to senior health professionals who will act as ambassadors for the Institute within their local health and professional communities.
