Working with the public is at the heart of what we do.
Involving the public in our work improves the quality of our research and helps us to ensure it is relevant. Working with the public means our research is more likely to be transformed into health benefits for people.
We believe that it is important to give the public a voice in all our work. The public voice influences everything we do from how we prioritise the issues we want to study, how we carry out research, how we interpret our results to how we share our findings.
By providing opportunities for all members of the public to get involved in and engage with our research, we will increase our accountability for the way we spend the public funds we receive.
We need members of the public to help us. If you are interested in being involved, please read on to get an understanding of how you can help us improve public health research, what is involved and how to contact us.
