Role of the chair

“I have been involved in NICE and its guideline programme in various roles for almost 20 years and have recently chaired three guideline committees. I have seen at first hand what an important contribution patient/public members can make to the discussions and recommendations. But that contribution needs to be nurtured by providing them with adequate support and by the committee Chair encouraging their participation throughout the process. Tokenism is not acceptable – active participation is essential.”
