Department of Health and Social Care seeks new Chair to lead NICE Board

The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) is looking to appoint a new chair to lead the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) Board.

Current Chair of the Board, Sir David Haslam will be stepping down later this year. In a recent message he said:

“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.”

The assessment panel will be comprised of:

  • Professor Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer
  • Jonathan Marron, Director General, Community and Social Care
  • Professor Stephen Powis, NHS England Medical Director
  • Professor Sir John Bell, Regius Professor of Medicine, University of Oxford

The deadline for submissions is midday on 7 May 2019.
