Advisory Groups


The Advisory Groups are the key fora for clinicians and scientists to meet with representatives from NHSBT, commissioners and Departments of Health and others to review and develop policies, assess outcomes, and work with partners and stakeholders to improve outcomes for patients. The structure and role of the Advisory Groups has recently been reviewed (see link) and recommendations made from which changes will be implemented. The Chairs, who are all elected with independent input, meet at the Chairs of the Advisory Groups Committee. The Advisory Groups report to the ODT Senior Management Team.
