Get involved

Join committee with BTS, SIGN and NICE

The British Thoracic Society (BTS), Scottish Intercollegiate Guideline Network (SIGN) and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) are working together to produce guidance for the diagnosis and management of chronic asthma in adults, young people and children.

They are currently looking for patients, unpaid carers and their advocates to join the committee developing the guideline.

See their Asthma recruitment advert(this link will take you away from our website)  for details of what working with the committee involves, the kind of experience and knowledge they are looking for, and how to apply. Recruitment is open until 5pm on 30 September.

They would welcome an application from those who have recent experience or knowledge of this topic and are able to reflect the views, experiences and needs of the public to ensure they are included in the development of this guideline. They need to be able to contribute effectively in a formal committee setting.  Lay members are paid a fee to attend meetings and they cover travel and other expenses

See the project page(this link will take you away from our webiste) on the NICE website for more details about this guideline project, including key dates and relevant documents.
