Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement Plan 2016/18

  Created on Wednesday, 05 Jul 2017. Posted in Public Involvement

Public contributors bring a wealth of knowledge and insights to research based on their personal experiences as users of health and social care services and treatments. For example, who better to ask if a research question is relevant and important to patients and carers, than its potential beneficiaries? Or whether the frequency and timing of a series of tests proposed by researchers would actually be acceptable to the patients and carers that they plan to invite to take part in the research?

Each of our objectives are summarised in the Action Plan and cover the areas of:

  • Reach,
  • Support,
  • Knowledge,
  • Integration
  • Communication and accessibility
