RECRUITMENT: NICE ALCOHOL GUIDE
ALCOHOL USE DISORDER IN ADULTS AND YOUNGPEOPLE
COMMUNITY MEMBER RECRUITMENT
Closing date 16 May 2008
NICE is extending the closing date for this community member role until 5pm 16th May.
Community members of this group will play a key role in making sure that the views and experiences of adults and young people – about preventing and managing harmful drinking – inform the guidance’s development and its recommendations to the NHS, local authorities and the wider public, private, voluntary and community sectors.
NICE would welcome an application from people (aged 16+) who have experience or knowledge of the issues that are important to adults and young people in relation to preventing and managing harmful drinking, for example as someone:
• who has been involved in activities or groups to improve their own and/or their family’s or community’s health or well-being in relation to alcohol use
• who uses or has used a relevant NHS or other service to address an alcohol-related problem
• who is a member or officer of a relevant community or voluntary organisation.

Public health and other health-related professionals will be well represented on the group so we are looking for someone without this type of professional background.
The Centre for Public Health Excellence is still also recruiting separately for public health and other health-related professional members for this Programme Development Group. Click here for informatoion.
Please note that there are different person specification criteria for the community member and professional member roles and also different application processes.
