Patients, carers and public
Taking part in research and shaping research
Patients are at the centre of our work. We ensure that the research we support is relevant to and benefits those who use primary care services by involving patients and the public at all stages of the research process. As a patient, carer or as a member of the public you can help research by:
- participating in research - as patients/participants voluntarily taking part in clinical and other well designed studies
- helping to shape how we do research - as patients and members of the public working with researcher professionals and clinicians (e.g. doctors, nurses) and getting actively involved in the different stages of research and related activities
We are keen to hear and learn from you.
