Patient and public involvement (PPI) entails research being carried out ‘with’ or ‘by’ members of the public, rather than ‘to’, ‘about’ or ‘for’ them.
The SPCR celebrates meaningful PPI and this wouldn’t be possible without the dedication of public contributors who share their experiences, time, and skills with the research community. To acknowledge and celebrate contributions public contributors make to primary care research, entries are now invited for the 'Exceptional Contribution to Patient and Public Involvement Prize' 2020.
Staff based at SPCR member departments can nominate public contributors who have been involved in primary care research. To nominate a public contributor or a team of public contributors, submit a description of their involvement with primary care research (up to 500 words), making use of specified headings.

Submissions to be sent to email@example.com by Tuesday 26 January 2021. For any questions, please contact Esther via email.
