There are a number of ways patients and the public can get involved in the design of research and running of research studies. The links provided below provide some useful sources of information regarding this.

Patient Research Ambassadors’
We want to embed a patient-centred research culture in the NHS. To do this, we need to engage both patients and NHS care staff in research in better ways. Patients, carers and lay people who have experienced research can often be the best ‘Research Ambassadors’ in their local NHS care organisation. They can help ensure that people using local NHS care have the best opportunities and choices about taking part in research studies.
We are delighted to be part of the pilot for this project at JPUH and will shortly be announcing our two voluntary Patient Research Ambassadors following interviews in April.
