Research that benefits everyone

We want to involve patients and members of the public from diverse backgrounds and communities in our research. Doing this means we can be sure that the treatments and tests we develop from our research are fit for everyone in our diverse local populations and beyond.

We follow the National Intisute for Helath Research's guidance on reimbursements for public contributors.
As this is a complex area, the guidance above is unlikely to be able to cover everyone’s individual circumstances. We therefore strongly advise you to get expert advice about your own personal financial circumstances before accepting payment for involvement in research.
This is particularly important if you receive welfare benefits because receiving payments for public involvement activities may impact this.
