Opportunities for involvement in research

Do you want to help shape our work?

We are looking for patients, members of the public and carers to join our Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement Group, and play a key role in using your experience as a patient/research participant to help shape the work of our clinical research facility (CRF). The group initially will focus on understanding and ,where necessary, improving patient experience at the CRF, including:

  • Making sure that we produce information that is easy to understand by our patients
  • Embedding patient perspective within the our organisational structure
  • Ensuring that we communicate through the correct methods to our patients and the wider public

A key priority going forward for the CRF is to involve patients in study design and implementation. Patient involvement through advisory groups help researchers consider the patient’s perspective and often has a positive impact on recruiting patients to a study. students on PPI group at clinical research facility in manchester
