Advisory Group Opportunities

Could you use your professional expertise to support the NIHR Dissemination Centre? We are inviting expressions of interest to join our external advisory group.

The NIHR Dissemination Centre puts good research evidence at the heart of health and social care decision-making. We produce summaries of the most significant and actionable new research evidence and ensure they reach audiences of all kinds: clinicians, managers, commissioners and patients.

Our external advisory group supports and guides our work and its members act as critical friends to the staff of the Centre. As we work through the second half of our current five-year contract and consider the possibility of tendering for a second contract, the opportunities for us to benefit from external stakeholder perspectives has never been greater.

We are seeking new advisory group members with the following areas of expertise:

  • Clinical or non-clinical senior leadership in acute secondary care settings
  • Clinical or non-clinical senior leadership in the independent sector, providing NHS-contracted services
  • Clinical leadership in mental health service provision
  • Clinical leadership in any of the professions allied to medicine
  • Communications leadership in a health-related charity or other health-related third sector organisation

The advisory group meets twice a year (June and December) in central London. Meetings run from 10.30 to 3.30pm. The role is unremunerated but the Centre meets all related expenses.

If you wish to be considered for advisory group membership, please send an expression of interest (500 words maximum) to Alison Ford, Head of Engagement: alison.ford@nihr.ac.uk 

Please email no later than 28/02/2018.

If you would like more information about the role, please email Alison to arrange a phone call.
