Clinical Advisor to the National Guideline Alliance (NGA)

NGA logoNew Clinical Advisor opportunities for O&G consultants

The NGA are the RCOG team based in the Education and Quality Directorate who develop clinical and social care guidelines commissioned by NICE. The team develop guidelines using the best available evidence, working with a committee of professionals and lay members relevant to each topic.

To support the NGA in developing these guidelines, we have created new Clinical Advisor opportunities for O&G consultants who are either:

  • Reducing clinical commitments and have capacity in their weekly timetable to support the continued improvement of women’s health guidelines
  • Who have recently retired from clinical practice within the last 24 months and have retained a GMC licence to practise
  • Clinical academics who have capacity in their weekly timetable and who are interested in gaining future publications from the guideline topic.

The roles will be part of the NGA team, providing clinical input into allocated guideline topics, ensuring that guideline outputs are meaningful to a clinical audience and provide quality assurance to the clinical content.

Each role will require an average time commitment of one session per week, which can be managed flexibly. Work can be conducted remotely, although incumbents will be required to spend time at the RCOG, particularly on days where there are guideline committee meetings.

The roles are non-remunerated, although reasonable expenses will be paid.

In addition to the opportunity to support the development of NICE guidance and be part of the team named in the published document, there will also be opportunities for future publications or other academic output.

For more information and an informal discussion regarding the role, interested parties should contact Gary Waltham, Executive Director, NGA via gwaltham@rcog.org.uk
