About the Royal College of Anaesthetists
Anaesthesia is the largest single hospital specialty in the NHS. The Royal College of Anaesthetists is the professional body responsible for the specialty throughout the UK, and it ensures the quality of patient care through the maintenance of standards.
With a combined membership of 22,000 fellows and members, representing the three specialties of anaesthesia, intensive care and pain medicine, we are the third largest Medical Royal College by UK membership.

What we are looking for
Our Lay Committee was established in 1998 with the purpose of providing a non-clinical view on the College’s activities to improve patient care and experience.
We are looking to recruit a member of the Lay Committee for Northern Ireland to join us in advising and supporting the Northern Ireland Advisory Board of the Royal College of Anaesthetists. You will be invited to actively contribute your lay perspective to a range of workstreams including our clinical guidelines and onsite clinical reviews of anaesthesia services. You will need to be able to travel and commit to giving at least 12 days a year, which include three meetings per year (in London) plus a strategy away day.
We would like to hear from you if you can demonstrate a genuine interest in healthcare and the specialty of anaesthesia. You will be a confident communicator, skilled at debating your points with the flexibility to reach shared agreements.
As a lay member, we cannot consider you if you currently hold an anaesthetic medical qualification or are currently working, practising or are involved in policy or decision making within the healthcare sector. DBS checks will be required for the successful candidate(s).

For more information and details on how to apply please contact the North West Volunteer Centre.

Closing date: 28th February 2019
Interviews will take place in March or April 2019
