Our Involvement

The overarching aim of our research is to improve health and health services for patients & the public - that includes you!

A key part of this is involves inviting the public to help shape our work and ensure it is relevant, useful and accessible. We also aim to share the findings of our research with the wider public in innovative ways and we really welcome your feedback.

In this section of the site you will be able to find out more about how patients and the public get involved in our work.
