We collaborate with patient and public involvement groups to support all stages of the research process including development, delivery, sharing results and translating research into practice. The groups include:
- Citizen Participation Group which is a growing group of individuals in the community (including NHS staff) contributing to research through face-to-face and virtual membership.
- Yorkshire Quality and Safety Research Group Panel with over 10 years’ experience as partners of the Yorkshire Quality and Safety Research team.
- Lay Leaders who are valued members of our research centre and embedded within research management structures in the health service. They connect research to local and regional patient and community organisations.
To increase reach and inclusivity we plan to engage with at least 10 community organisations across Yorkshire and Humber by 2021.
