The Professional Affairs Committee (PAC) was set up by a small group of members following the successful work completed by a sub-group of members to rewrite the NBE Aims and Vision Statement.
The PAC aims to consider any matters relating to M&H at a national level, to represent the interests of members, to promote a wider understanding of the importance of safer M&H, to promote the achievements of Professional M&H Practitioners, to work collaboratively with industry bodies and other associated groups and to promote the development of skills and standings in M&H.
The group is made up of members from a wide range of backgrounds including academia, private practice, industry, NHS, and social services.
