Kate Rivett

Lay member

I have gained experience as a lay member in numerous roles over the last 15 years. These have predominantly been in Anaesthesia after being appointed to the Lay Committee (formerly Patient Liaison Group) of the Royal College of Anaesthetists (2005). I was co-opted to a number of specialist projects run through the Association of Anaesthetists and served on the Joint Committee of Good Practice. I continued to represent the lay perspective, in association with the RCoA, on the Intercollegiate Advisory Committee for Sedation in Dentistry (IACSD). Other lay roles include the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Invited Review Mechanism, Health Education England, Quality Patient Safety and Commissioning Team, EPOCH Trial (2013-2018) Patient and Public Involvement, and membership of the Board of
Anaesthesia from 2006-2019.
