Current opportunities
We have several opportunities available to patients and members of the public to get involved in defining and guiding our research. If you are interested in getting involved in any aspect or our research please contact Paul Dijkstra

Why patients and the public want to get involved

They want to make a positive difference to the quality of care or to improve treatments, either for themselves or for others with a similar condition

People want to ensure the voices of their communities are represented in research

Some people have had difficult experiences and appreciate being able to do something positive with that experience

Others have had very good experiences and see their involvement as an opportunity to ‘give something back’

People want to use their professional skills and experience to improve health research

People want to learn more about their condition and the research that is going on

They find the PPI work and research topics interesting

 PPI contributors can benefit from increased confidence, knowledge, and skills
