Opportunities for public involvement in NHS, public health and social care research

How to join in

An overview

Public involvement in research is when the research is carried out with or by members of the public rather than ‘to’, ‘about’, or ‘for’ them.

This includes, for example, working with research funders to prioritise research, offering advice as members of a project steering group, commenting on and developing research materials and undertaking research with research participants.

For more information, see about public involvement.
