NICE work

Two physiotherapists have been recognised with new awards from the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence.

Dr Nicholas Harland receives one of the first 10 NICE fellowships, a scheme to help link NICE to clinical communities.

A back pain researcher and clinician, he leads the extended services team at North Yorkshire and York PCT. He is the only AHP to receive the three-year fellowship.

‘My primary remit is to act as an ambassador, reducing what some perceive to be the “them and us” gap between NICE and grass-roots clinicians,’ he told Frontline. ‘As a back pain clinician and researcher I hope to facilitate understanding and appropriate implementation of the recent controversial persistent back pain guidelines within my strategic health authority and beyond.’

Rebecca Kearney has been awarded a NICE scholarship aimed at younger health professionals at an early stage of their career who have worked on a project that connects NICE with their specialty.

A research physio at the University of Warwick/University hospital of Coventry and Warwickshire trust, last year she received CSP Charitable Trust funding for her work on Achilles tendinopathy management.
