I got this headhunting note. Some of us are not of the disposition to chair a government committee and are inconveniently on the wrong side of the ocean. But if expertise on THR is a requirement, I have to think that any serious applicant should be one of you (someone who reads this blog). Frankly, I do not think this is legit, and that they are seeking a “tobacco control” type person, not someone interested in harm reduction. But it would be nice to see what happens if some real THR people apply.
The Centre for Public Health Excellence at NICE is recruiting a Chair of the Programme Development Group (PDG) for the programme guidance on Tobacco – harm reduction approaches to smoking cessation for PCTs and NHS Stop Smoking Services.

The deadline for applications is 24th February 2011.
