The BSH currently has over 80 Guidelines that we develop and maintain.
If you are a member of one of the BSH Task Forces, this is where you will find all the information you need to propose, develop, structure and write your new guideline.
We have developed an online Induction Tutorial which goes through the roles and responsibilities as a Task Force member. You will need to be signed into the BSH site using your member login to access this page.
The proposal form should be completed by the Writing Group Chair and/or the Task Force representative. The proposal should have been discussed and agreed by the Task Force before submission to the Guidelines Committee for final approval.
Please ensure you have read the BSH Guidelines Development Process (outlines the BSH Guidelines Guidance development and process, including writing groups job descriptions, before completing this form).
Each BSH guideline follows a standard template which your writing group should use.
