Patient and Public Involvement

The involvement of Patients and the Public in the systems and processes of health improvement and wealth creation is both the right thing to do and hugely beneficial when done right.

We seek to embed meaningful Patient and Public Involvement in all of our Programmes. Some of the highlights of the projects we have funded have been the patient and public ownership of them.

Three examples from many are:

  • The making research better website
  • The Transforming Participation Partnership
  • Production of a measurement framework for Patient Safety

The making research better website

Launched in November 2014 the Making Research Better website was a collaboration between the AHSN NENC and the local Clinical Research Network. Led by Dr Chris Elliott, this is a user-designed resource to demystify clinical research. The voyage of discovery that was its inception and production has been just as inspiring and impressive as the site itself.
