Description

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC) North Thames is a collaboration between world leading universities, the NHS, University College London (UCL) Partners, local authorities, patients, the public, industry and charities. Our aim is to improve health outcomes and reduce inequalities through world class applied health research. NIHR CLAHRC North Thames covers north central and north east London; south and west Hertfordshire; south Bedfordshire; and south west and mid Essex. The Director of the NIHR CLAHRC North Thames is Professor Rosalind Raine. Rosalind is Professor of Health Care Evaluation and the Head of the Department of Applied Health Research at UCL. She is also Assistant Director of Research and Development at the UCL Joint Research Office (a partnership between UCL, University College London Hospitals (UCLH) and Royal Free Hospitals NHS Foundation Trusts).

Public involvement in research

The public can get involved in the NIHR CLAHRC North Thames in several ways. For example, by being a Patient and Public Involvement rep on individual projects – this could involve commenting on patient information sheets, or helping to make sure interview questions are acceptable.

Or by becoming a member of our lay research panel, which will be formed of patients, carers and interested members of the public who will be asked to give input into various aspects of the overall CLAHRC programme. Our Public and Patient Involvement and Engagement Officer, Steven Towndrow, can be contacted if you would like to hear more about these opportunities: clahrc.norththames@ucl.ac.uk
