We provide free training to researchers on implementing PPI in their work. We constantly update and improve this and have recently undertaken a major review.
We have developed simple documents to summarise our research projects for patients and the public.
All our latest publications are on Research Snapshots page.
Young People’s Advisory Group
We have worked with Patient and Public Involvement groups for many years and recently added a new group made up of young people aged 14 to 18. You can read more about on the Young People’s Advisory Group page.
Kings's Health Partners' Summer School
We run a week long Summer School programme for 15/16 year olds every year along with our colleagues at King’s Health Partners. The 2020 Summer School was delivered in June, via YouTube to allow for social distancing.
To enquire about the Summer School please contact Claire O’Neill, Public Engagement Manager.
International Clinical Trials Day
Each year, teams from all over the BRC and R&D come together to mark International Clinical Trials Day. Held on or around the 20th June, this event recognises the day in 1747 that James Lind, a ship’s surgeon aboard the HMS Salisbury, began his pioneering clinical trial into the causes of scurvy. We have a story about the 2019 events on our news page.
Frequently Asked Questions about data
We worked with a patient group to develop a new page for the Guy’s and St Thomas’ website to answer any questions that patients may have about how their data is used for research. This was then adapted to incorporate the text provided by the Health Research Authority.
Research awareness survey
Our Clinical Research Facility (CRF) took part in a national project to investigate awareness amongst our patients, visitors and non-research staff about the research we carry out. The project was set up by the UK CRF Network to help to build both a national and local picture of awareness of research. This will then be used to find new ways of increasing awareness and engagement with the public.
The project produced the below poster available for you to download.
