The BTS/SIGN British asthma guideline is due to be reviewed over the next two years, and they are looking for some new healthcare professionals to contribute to the review process. They are inviting applications from pharmacists and physiotherapists as well as nurses and early career GPs, and we are keen to see primary care professionals taking up this opportunity to add their expertise in this forum.

Professor Hilary Pinnock has been involved in the guideline for many years and would like to encourage you to apply:
‘Being part of the respiratory-interested team who develop the BTS/SIGN asthma guideline involves commitment over the course of the 18 months of the guideline update, but it is well worth the time and effort! You will develop your skills in critical appraisal, work with others to examine the evidence base for all aspects of asthma care and at the end of the day help to shape the guideline ensuring that the realities of primary care practice are considered. So stimulating and enlightening and a real opportunity for your personal development’.
Some training is provided so there is good support for developing some new skills or brushing up on existing skills.
