People are Messy

People are Messy

As part of the new I Am Research campaign to celebrate International Clinical Trials Day 2017, we are screening ‘People are Messy’ at events across the country. The film, a Theatre of Debate production, engages its audiences in an informed debate around patient and public involvement in health research.

The events are free to attend and will also feature a Research Fair where you can find out more about how patients and the public can help shape and deliver improvements in health.

You will need to register through the links in the timetable below to attend the event you would like to attend.

For the NIHR, International Clinical Trials Day is an opportunity to showcase the diversity of health and social care research, how you can get involved and the benefits it brings to patients and the public. This is exactly what the 'People are Messy' film screening and Research Fair aims to do.

Please note, the film is hard-hitting and features some adult language.


"This fabulous, entertaining and moving film goes to the heart of why involving patients and the public is so important to science and to society.”
SimonDenegri, NIHR National Director for Patients and the Public
