Patient & Public Involvement
Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is integral to the School's research and research capacity development activities, and is informed by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)'s policy for patient involvement. The School is committed to developing the evidence base for enhancing the effectiveness of PPI and funds high quality primary and secondary research. Patients, mental health service users, carers and members of the public with an interest in research are encouraged and supported to work in partnership with researchers on projects carried out across the NIHR School for Primary Care Research.
