Is NICE nice? The development of NICE guidelines
Susan Bewley went to Oxford Medical School in 1976, and was the first woman trained in Maternal Fetal Medicine in the UK. She was appointed a consultant at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital in 1994 and led the department to being the highest performing unit in London before becoming Clinical Director at NHS London 2009-2013. She set up innovative services for mental health and domestic violence. Her research interests have largely been in severe maternal morbidity, domestic violence in pregnancy and latterly sexual violence as she now works as a sexual offences examiner. She also obtained a degree in medical law and ethics, chaired the RCOG Ethics Committee and was awarded the prestigious BMJ Editors ‘Speaking Truth to Power’ Award. She is committed to evidence-based medicine and is a great exponent of integrity and science. Today we will hear from her about her work with NICE – she chaired both the 2014 NICE intrapartum guideline CG190 that followed the UK Birthplace study, and has since chaired a NICE Standing Committee.
