The Association of Anaesthetists represent the life changing, life-saving profession of anaesthesia – by supporting, informing and inspiring a worldwide community of over 10,000 members. The Association recognises the contribution of lay members to its governance and across our different workstreams, and has recruited lay members with specialist skills and knowledge onto its committees and Board in recent years.

About the role - Non-executive lay member of the Research & Grants Committee

This is a voluntary role (unremunerated except for expenses) and offers an opportunity to contribute to the strategic development and research strategy of a leading medical organisation dedicated to promoting patient safety and quality of care in this country and worldwide. For more information please see the Association’s lay member policy.

Lay members bring professional expertise, judgement and balance which may not be available among the elected directors and Trustees. Their principal assets will be their independence, different perspectives, detachment and the provision of an external view. It is envisaged that the new lay member will add value not only to the Research & Grants Committee’s work but in the organisation as a whole e.g. by providing a sounding board for senior managers. There may be opportunities to become involved more widely, depending on the lay member’s individual preferences and time.

Responsible to: Chair of the Research & Grants Committee

Key relationships:

  • Chair of the Research & Grants Committee
  • All Officers and committee members
  • Chief Executive Officer and Senior Management
  • Other staff as required

In addition, lay members may, from time to time, interact with external organisations as a representative of the Association.

Person specification

This is a voluntary role (unremunerated except for expenses) and offers an opportunity to contribute to the strategic development, funding decisions and governance of the research and grant aims of a leading medical organisation dedicated to promoting patient safety and quality of care in this country and worldwide. The lay member will be a co-opted member of the Research and Grants committee. Travel and other reasonable expenses will be paid in line with the Association’s expenses policy.
