The School for Primary Care Research is committed to meaningful patient and public involvement and public engagement.

It's vision with regards to patient and public involvement and engagement is 

to establish a culture within the NIHR School for Primary Care Research where our community has the skills and resources to optimise and deliver patient and public involvement and engagement and it is integrated in to our ways of working and throughout the research we fund

The SPCR has, in consultation with researchers, public contributors and involvement professionals, identified 6 aims that will lead the School's involvement and engagement programme to work towards it's vision:
