What is an AAC?
An Advisory Appointments Committee (AAC) is an interview panel for a consultant or a specialty doctor in an NHS Trust. This system was put in place by parliamentary legislation in 1996.
The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH) must provide an independent representative to sit on any NHS interview for a non-training doctor post in England, Wales or Northern Ireland. The College also supports a similar system, the National Panelists Scheme, in Scotland.
