Additional Information

Message from Sir David Haslam, Chair, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

“A day never goes by when NICE isn’t in the news. With responsibilities stretching right across the whole of health and social care, and with interested stakeholders including clinicians, industry, social care professionals, patients, people who use services, and the wider public – being chair of NICE requires an almost uniquely broad view. Chairing an organisation with a world-wide reputation for excellence is constantly fascinating and stimulating. It is a real honour to work here.”

Sir David Haslam.

National Institute of Health and Care Excellence Role and Responsibilities

NICE was set up in April 1999 as a Special Health Authority. The Health and Social Care Act 2012 established NICE as an England only Executive Non-Departmental Public Body from 1 April 2013 and extended its remit to adults’ and children’s social care. Through its robust, evidence-based advice and guidance, NICE has a key part in supporting the health and care system in driving greater efficiency and quality improvement. It also has a key role in supporting the ambitions of the life sciences industrial strategy, innovation and developments in the digital sphere that affect health and care.

NICE works closely with other organisations in the health and care system. This includes DHSC, NHS England, Public Health England, Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency, NHS Improvement, NHS Digital, the Care Quality Commission, Health Education England, the National Institute for Health Research, local NHS bodies and local authorities. In addition, NICE maintains strong links with the life sciences industry, academia, the third sector and the international community.

NICE operates a range of programmes generating guidance and advice for the NHS, social care, and the wider public health community, including clinical guidelines, interventional procedures guidance, public health and social care guidance, quality standards and technology appraisals for pharmaceuticals and other medical technologies. These programmes are supported by implementation support materials and activities, and are complemented by Evidence Services, an on-line evidence resource for all health and social care professionals. NICE provides the British National Formulary and a range of advice and support on the effective use of medicines.

If appointed, you will also be required to declare these interests on appointment and they will be entered into a register which is available to the public.

Standards in public life and ensuring public confidence

Given the nature of public appointments, it is important that those appointed as members of public bodies maintain the confidence of the public and Government. If there are any issues in your personal or professional history (including any convictions or bankruptcy) that could, if you were appointed, be misconstrued, cause embarrassment to Ministers or NICE or cause public confidence in the appointment to be jeopardised, it is important that you bring them to the attention of the Assessment Panel and provide details of the issue/s in your Supporting letter. In considering whether you wish to declare any issues, you should also reflect on any public statements you have made, including through social media and blogs. Due Diligence may be carried out on any publicly available information and shared with the Advisory Assessment Panel.

The panel may explore any issues you declare with you before they make a recommendation on the appointment.

Failure to disclose such information could result in an appointment being terminated, as those who hold public appointments are expected to demonstrate the highest standards of corporate and personal conduct, and are required to subscribe to the Code of Conduct for Board Members of Public Bodies, as part of agreeing to the terms and conditions of appointment.

Ideally they will be people with backgrounds in finance, transformation, OD, organisational change or IT.

We want imaginative board colleagues who possess a broad range of strategic skills and whose capacity to constructively challenge can inspire, motivate and influence - both internally and externally - and who can communicate effectively with all types of audience. Beyond this, they will need a genuine commitment to supporting staff, patients, services users, families and carers.

If you think this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you.

Andy Willis

Trust Chairman
