Join a research study
There are thousands of research studies being carried out both nationally and locally. However, only 21 per cent of people say they would feel very confident about asking their doctor about research opportunities.
We want people to know that it is OK to ask your doctor, nurse or other health worker if you can take part in a clinical trial or a research study.
To find a research project in which you could take part at Guy’s and St Thomas’, please visit our research studies and clinical trials webpage.
Alternatively you can visit Be Part of Research which is an online service from the NIHR that provides an opportunity to help members of the public understand what research is and what it might mean to take part, as well as showing what research is currently happening across the UK.
Join one of our Patient and Public Involvement groups
There are several Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) groups which meet with researchers to provide a lay person’s point of view on their work and help them to decide where to focus their efforts.
You can contribute to their work as a patient adviser or representative by joining one of our advisory groups. Please click on the below links for more information and contact details for the groups.
For more information or if you would like to discuss establishing an advisory group in a disease area not mentioned above, please contact our Patient and Public Involvement Lead, firstname.lastname@example.org.
