NICE quality standard: Postnatal care - recruitment of topic expert group members (Community Paediatrician)

posted 18 Jul 2012, 03:39 by Damian Wood
We would like to invite you to apply as a topic expert group (TEG) member for the above named quality standard.

Given the standard’s importance, it is essential that NICE recruit experienced professionals as TEG members. Those recruited will have a direct role in developing a nationally implemented quality standard with the promotion of the best possible practice and health outcomes for children at its core.

Being a TEG member is a demanding yet very rewarding role, which includes defining clinical questions, identifying and synthesising evidence, and formulating the guideline recommendations.

NICE have already recruited representatives from several professions, and are now only looking to recruit a Community Paediatrician.

The development phase will last for a year, beginning in August, and TEG members will be expected to attend four meetings held in Manchester. The TEG meetings are scheduled to take place on Thursday 9th August, Thursday 15th November, and Tuesday 26th March 2013. The final meeting date is yet to be confirmed.

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Monday 23rd July. If you are interested, please complete and send us the attached application form on We apologise for the tight deadline, NICE sent this request out today, so we have contacted you as quickly as possible. If you have any queries with regards to the development of this quality standard please email Rachel Neary at for more information.

If you have any other questions, please contact the Clinical Standards team.
