Register to receive BAAS consultations

Closes 31 Jan 2018

Opened 27 Feb 2013


Burden Advice and Assessment Service

The Burden Advice and Assessment Service (BAAS) process (previously ROCR) makes sure that information demands on the NHS are minimised, fit with current national health policies and are carried out in the most efficient way without duplication.

Consultation Panel

The panel consists of NHS staff who have volunteered their support to the approval process and we ask them what effort is involved to collect the information.

Panel members provide comments based on their local knowledge of issues, including:

  • whether information is already available, to help avoid duplication
  • the level of effort that would be required to collect the information.

If you currently work for an NHS organisation or other healthcare provider, and wish to contribute to this important piece of work by becoming a panel member please click on the online survey link below to register. We would also be grateful if you could pass this invitation on to anyone who may be interested in registering.  We will send you a link to the documents when the collection is being reviewed. We will not disclose your details to anyone outside the Health and Social Care Information Centre without your express permission.

We will send you a link to the documents when a collection is being reviewed and we will keep all requests short and relevant.
