The North West People in Research Forum was an organisation which was devoted to support patient and public involvement (PPI) and public engagement (PE) in health research in the North West.
We aimed to:
support researchers to involve and engage patients and the public
support patients and members of the public who are, or wish to become, involved in health research
share learning about PPI and PE in research
form a link between researchers and patients/public
raise awareness about health research in the Region and opportunities to get involved.
We supported existing initiatives as well as developing new ones. The Forum worked across the North West – Cumbria, Lancashire, Greater Manchester, Merseyside, and Cheshire.
