GP and social scientist needed to join UK National Screening Committee

As many readers of this blog will know, the UK National Screening Committee (UK NSC) advises ministers and the NHS about population screening. It is currently chaired by Professor Bob Steele, Director of Centre for Research into Cancer Prevention and Screening, University of Dundee.

The UK NSC weighs up the evidence about the benefits and drawbacks of screening to make expert recommendations.

We are currently looking for 2 new members of the committee, specifically:

  • a General Practitioner (GP)
  • a practising social scientist

The UK NSC meet 3 times per year, in February, June and October. There is no remuneration for these posts but expenses are paid at a centrally set rate.

The closing date for applications is midday on 10 October 2018.

More information and an information pack is available.
