Patient and public involvement

Our Trust strongly encourages Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in all Trust lead research applications.

We readily engage in relevant Patient and Public Involvement initiatives, linking with appropriate NIHR and regional networks to ensure we improve the quality and quantity of member engagement across our research portfolio. This is important in contributing to the quality, relevance and design of the study itself.

It is important out patients feel confident in asking clinical colleagues about research opportunities relevant to their condition, and we support this by promoting the NIHR ‘OK To Ask’ campaign across our services. We also work hard to capture and act upon patient experience and engagement feedback, in order to inform and refine our service delivery.
