Public and patient involvement

Watch why we involve the public in research on YouTube.

We provide members of the public, service users and carers with the opportunity to have their voices heard and acted upon.

We are committed to patient and public involvement and engagement and have established a Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement Group.

I was a nurse and a lecturer for many years. I have had breast cancer and my husband died from lung cancer. As a result I have become involved in the School of Healthcare Sciences, talking in particular from a patient and carer perspective. I hope and believe I can help other patients and carers in the future.
