Involvement Leads Network

Our Involvement Leads Network connects patients, carers and members of the public with people who have roles that focus on leading patient and public involvement or engagement within their organisation, both within our partnership, and outside of it.

Aim

Our Involvement Leads Network aims to support the sharing of knowledge and information across our partnership, spreading best practice for patient and public involvement and engagement.

The network provides an opportunity for peers to work together and learn from each other.

What we offer

  • Six meetings per year on topics chosen by network members
  • The opportunity to network with other patients, carers, members of the public and members of staff who work in this area.

How to join

To join the Network, please contact our Patient Insight and Involvement Lead, Erin Walker.

Watch Dr Amy Price (Patient Editor, Research and Evaluation, The BMJ) talk about the benefits of patient and public involvement in healthcare research. Dr Price was a speaker at the UCLPartners Involvement Leads Network event on 26 March 2019.
