Patients, carers & the public

Health is relevant to everyone, which is why we want to involve patients and the public in all the research we do.

By including people in our research we can make sure that it is responsive to their needs and makes a difference.

Our NIHR Newcastle BRC PPIE Strategy 2017 (Word doc) outlines how we work – please feel free to download and read in your own time.

For more information about how we work with the public, please see below.

In this film, created by our partners, VOICE, David talks about how important this has been for him as a member of the public and a carer.
