Patient and public involvement in research

Effective patient and public involvement can help researchers produce high-quality research that is relevant to patients’ needs. This could involve being part of a group of people advising a research team on research priorities or joining a research study steering group to give the patient point of view on all aspects of study design and conduct. If you are a member of the public who would like to get involved please contact Jennie Rose.
