The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence is seeking applications for membership of seven 'expert consideration panels' to assess focus of future guidance. NICE is forming the panels because it will shortly take over responsibility for managing the assessment process, although ministers will still make final decisions. It is seeking applications from 'individuals with specialist knowledge', 'generalists with a broad understanding of the NHS and NICE' and 'lay people' with an understanding of wider patient, carer and community perspectives'.
