For Patient and Public

How to get involved

Public Contributors Review Panel

We have recently trained a small group of interested members and governors into the background of clinical research so they can now read patient facing research materials for us, and edit them to be more understandable to the public.  We fully support this small group and offer full background and briefings on clinical research before they start this role.

"I'm fairly inexperienced in research, and the comments, advice and pointers the public contributors have spent time to feedback to me have been really very helpful.  They have shaped how I think about the study myself, how it will be undertaken, and the comments of the documents significantly.  I'm enormously grateful to them all,  many thanks" (Hepatology Research Fellow)

Search for a clinical trial

The National Institute for Health Research has launched a new website Be Part of Research.  This developing website has been designed to make it as easy as possible for the public to find out about health research and enable them to take part.  It also acts as a tool that clinicians and healthcare professionals can use to support patients who ask about research.

To find a clinical trial in your area simply search for a condition or disease and add 'York'.
