RCGP Clinical Advisers - Register Now
The College receives requests for GP input from organisations such as NICE and by joining our database of Clinical Advisers, you would be our first port of contact when we receive these requests. This programme provides GPs with an expertise or interest in specific area(s) of clinical practice the opportunity to influence clinical guidelines and projects through participation in a range of initiatives via the Clinical Innovation and Research Centre (CIRC). It is these GPs who the College contact in the first instance when we receive requests from NICE. The role of a Clinical Adviser gives you the opportunity to be alerted to work that may either be in your speciality area, other areas of interest for you, or allow you the opportunity to provide a strong generalist view point.
There are a wide range of clinical and professional categories that you can choose to register in as either an expert or generalist. Registration is free and carries no set obligation as participants are contacted on a project-by-project basis and are free to accept any projects of interest when you have capacity. Participation is open to all practicing GPs within three years of retirement. For further information including the eligibility criteria and to obtain the registration form please click here.
The time commitment required will vary depending on what you choose to do, e.g.: if you wish to respond to a consultation, this would involve you emailing us your comments after reading the documentation; if you wish to attend a workshop this is usually half a day; if you wish to be a member of a Guideline Development Group, this is usually a day or so every few months. You choose your areas of interest, and when we receive any requests for consultations, meetings or workshops in those areas, we will email you about them. You will need to respond only if it interests you and you have the capacity. Once you are registered with us you will immediately get any emails about consultations, workshops or recruitment opportunities in your chosen clinical area(s) and you can respond if you are interested.
