This gives you a chance to complete a mini CV detailing experience that would make you a valuable member of writing group and to state which areas you have a sub-speciality in.
Please note that there may not be a guideline being developed on the topics in which you have a sub-speciality. All expressions of interest will be kept in a file and looked at when a new guideline writing group is convened.
To join a writing group you must be working in the UK as a consultant haematologist, clinical scientist or other relevant position to the guideline topic.
To express an interest in joining a Task Force please fill in the form below. As a member of a Task Force you would be expected to attend three to four meetings a year. You would also be the Task Force representative on at least one writing group to ensure that the guideline conforms to BCSH process.

This gives you a chance to complete a mini CV detailing past experience that would make you a valuable member of the Task Force and to state those areas in which you have a sub-speciality. You would be expected to have experience in the writing of guidelines or similar processes (not necessarily with BCSH) or to bring other skills to the Task Force.
Please note that only one vacancy a year, on average, becomes available on each Task Force. The criteria for picking a new Task Force member takes into account not only experience and skills but also the need to keep a balanced Task Force with representatives from different areas of the country, different sub-specialities and different levels of hospitals.
