Chance to influence NICE

September 19th, 2013 | Posted by Gordon Deuchars in Advocacy | Consultations | Health | Older People | Older People's Organisations

NICE (the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) is looking for older people who use homecare services, and/or carers, to join a Homecare Guidance Development Group. More information is given below and in the website link attached, and you can also contact Barbara Meredith, if you have questions not answered on the website. Please contact NICE on the details supplied, not Age UK London.

The following information is directly from NICE:

“Recruitment is open until  24 September, and we would very much welcome applications both from older people who use homecare services, and/or from carers.  We do offer support to enable people with different needs to take part – for instance if someone needs support from a carer to be able to attend the meetings, we would ensure the carers’ costs were covered.  Similarly carers’ costs at home could be covered, up to a maximum of £60 per day.”
