Chair, NICE ▼25

For more than a decade Professor Rawlins has provided a staunch, but considered, defence of NICE’s decision making process, as well as overseeing a significant expansion of its remit. White paper proposals indicate that NICE’s quality standards will be a cornerstone of assessment and commissioning. Given dispensation to extend his tenure beyond the usual decade, next year will be Professor Rawlins’ last at NICE.
