Patient and Public Involvement in Research (PPI)

PPI Panel

If a clinical trial isn’t for you, you can still get involved in research by becoming a member of the Cambridge University Hospitals (CUH) Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) panel

 Patients and the public play a vital role in improving our research by sharing their experiences. Hearing their views can shape new research proposals and ensure that our research meets patient’s needs.

There are over 60 members from the East of England of all different ages and backgrounds on the panel. They review research proposals and patient materials, and meet with researchers to ask questions and provide feedback.

 No health experience is needed and panel members choose which projects interest them. All you need is an interest in sharing your views and experiences to help researchers carry out the best research they can. Panel members are also invited to research talks and training opportunities. This is a great way to be involved in research, make a difference and meet new people.
