Public Partners

The SMC committee has three Public Partners, who are volunteers working as part of the SMC Public Involvement Team. Their role is to help ensure  the views of patients, carers and members of the public are taken into account during SMC decision making.
 
Our Public Partners are also full voting members of SMC. They read each medicine submission before each meeting (which can be up to several hundred pages long), and fully participate in discussions during each meeting. Each Public Partner is also a member of our Public Involvement Network (PIN) Advisory Group.
 
They are also activity involved in a wide variety of other areas of SMC work – from participating in our Patient and Clinician Engagement (PACE) meetings to helping us recruit members of staff.
 
Our Public Partners are David Standley, Peter McGrath and Jenny Coutts.
