NICE – Ethicist opportunity

By lorrainep · September 9, 2022

We have an opportunity for an ethicist to join the NICE Highly Specialised Technologies committee, which meets around 8 times a year to make decisions about national commissioning for medicines for very rare diseases in the NHS. This involves important ethical trade offs, both when a medicine is not recommended and also when it is – because these medicines are always very expensive and therefore there is an important opportunity cost to devoting resources to them that could be spent elsewhere in the NHS.
