Public involvement at CCF
Sharing your knowledge and experience of living with a health condition, or as a user of health and social care services can help us to improve the quality of the research that we fund and make it more relevant to the needs of patients and carers.
Visit healthtalk.org to watch members of the public talking about what public involvement is, deciding why they got involved, what they are involved in, why involvement matters – and more.
The Central Commissioning Facility (CCF) is one of the NIHR's Coordinating Centres. CCF regularly involves members of the public in two different ways:
- as reviewers of funding applications
- as members of funding panels and committees.
We are always interested to hear from members of the public who would like to get involved in our work, which includes management of the following NIHR research programmes:
- Invention for Innovation (i4i)
- Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR)
- Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB).

There are many more opportunities to get involved in shaping research across the NIHR.
