Posted 11 December 2018

Date: 11 Dec 2018

Type: FSRH News and Information

The FSRH Clinical Effectiveness Committee (CEC) is recruiting for the following two vacancies – a General Practice member and a Specialty Doctor member.

The FSRH's Clinical Effectiveness Committee is responsible for overseeing the FSRH’s Clinical Effectiveness Unit (CEU), which works to promote evidence-based clinical practice. The unit has four main work streams: evidence-based guidance and NICE accredited guidelines (including the review and update of the UK Medical Eligibility Criteria); members’ evidence requests; new product reviews and clinical audit/research.

The committee also liaises and works collaboratively with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) and other professional organisations on issues of clinical practice. In addition, the committee prepares briefings for FSRH Council on emerging issues at the forefront of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (SRH).

Below are outlined the requirements and responsibilities of each (unpaid, clinical) role:

General Practice member

The Clinical Effectiveness Committee (CEC) is looking to appoint a General Practitioner member to the committee. The successful applicant will be a practising GP with interests in Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare (SRH) including contraception. FSRH is committed to making its output relevant to all members, and as the majority of FSRH members work in General Practice, it is essential that the committee have a member who can provide a GP perspective. The appointed member should expect some email communication throughout the year and commit to attending three committee meetings across the 12 months, usually held in London or Edinburgh. It is anticipated that the successful applicant will attend the committee’s subgroup meetings with the BNF.

Specialty Doctor member

The Clinical Effectiveness Committee (CEC) is looking to appoint a Specialty/SAS Doctor member to the committee. The successful applicant will be a practising doctor and be expected to input their experience and knowledge at all Clinical Effectiveness Committee meetings. The appointed member should expect some email communication throughout the year and commit to attending three committee meetings across the 12 months, usually held in London (one in Edinburgh).
