Looking for experts in Rehabilitation for Chronic Neurological Disorders

The National Guideline Alliance (NGA), on behalf of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), is looking to recruit committee members to develop a clinical guideline on Rehabilitation for Chronic Neurological Disorders Including Acquired Brain Injury.

We are looking for experts in Rehabilitation for Chronic Neurological Disorders to join our clinical guideline committee. We need people with a professional or practitioner background in the topic.

Chronic neurological disorders include:

  • acquired brain injury (causes including trauma, tumours, infections, metabolic insults and disorders of the blood supply)
  • acquired spinal cord injury resulting in neurological impairment
  • acquired peripheral nerve disorders
  • progressive neurological diseases (including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease and Duchenne’s muscular dystrophy)
  • functional neurological disorders

See the scope of this guideline for further information about what will be covered.

The committee membership has been produced based on the topic areas that will be covered in the guideline. We are recruiting for the following areas:

Core members of the committee (who would be expected to attend all meetings):

  • General practitioner
  • Dietician
  • Commissioners of services which may impact on people with CND. 1-2 committee members e.g. health, social care, education.

Co-opted members (who would attend 1 or 2 meetings):

Individuals who support people with CND in access/return to education or work and leisure. 1-2 committee members e.g. special educational needs advisors, vocational rehabilitation advisors.

People in social care roles who are involved with assessing/interventions for people with CND. 1-2 committee members e.g. social worker, care worker


If you or any of your colleagues would like to apply, there are more details on the NICE website.

Applications must be sent to NGAApplications@RCOG.ORG.UK for the attention of Hayley Shaw by 12pm on Monday 14th March 2022.

We would appreciate it if you could circulate this information widely in your organisation and to any other people or organisations who may be interested in this topic.
