Our work with public and patients

Members of the public and patients offer our researchers valuable insights and different perspectives. This has practical benefits for research participants and patients.

  • We bring people together with researchers to develop clinical research
  • We organise meetings, discussions and online document reviews so that people can ask questions and provide insight and comment on the research we do
  • We make sure research is relevant to participants and benefits patients now and in the future
  • We also provide opportunities for personal and professional development for patients, public and researchers and will be developing our programme of research assessing the impact of patient and public involvement.
