The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) has a long running national initiative to encourage patients and members of the public to become more involved in research locally. At MTW, we have recruited volunteers, known as Patient Research Champions who are responsible for promoting patient and public involvement in research.
Could you be a Patient Research Champion?
Are you interested in research? Are you interested in volunteering at your local hospital? Can you give just a few hours of your time a week? If you answer yes to these questions, you may be interested in becoming a Patient Research Champion.
We are looking for members of the public with a few hours to spare to volunteer within the Research and Innovation team as a Patient Research Champion. Working with existing volunteers, you will provide a support service to patients involved in research trials. You will also be part of a team dedicated to promoting the importance of research to healthcare providers and the wider public.
If you are interested in learning more about volunteering for research, please contact Frances Mossie, Lead Patient Research Champion, at email@example.com or telephone 01622 228728.
