NICE adds two new directors from health and social care

Bill Mumford is chief executive of the charity MacIntyre and Prof Finbarr Martin is specialist in elderly care

Bill Mumford, NICEThe UK's National institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has appointed two new non-executive directors with backgrounds in health and social care.

Bill Mumford (pictured right) is chief executive of the charity MacIntyre, which supports children and adults with learning disabilities.

His appointment is the first time a non-executive director has been appointed from a social care background, reflecting the expansion of NICE's remit to include social care from April this year.

"I am delighted to be joining the board of NICE at this strategically important time as it seeks to build up its knowledge and expertise of social care and extends its excellent reputation to new stakeholders,” said Mumford.

Finbarr Martin, NICEHis fellow new appointee is Prof Finbarr Martin (pictured left), who is a consultant in general and geriatric medicine at Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and honorary professor of medical gerontology at Kings College London.

NICE will draw on Prof Martin's experience in the care of elderly patients as it prepares to produce guidance to help the UK health system cope better with its aging population and tighten the relationship between health and social care.
