The Service Users Research Endeavour (SURE) group was formed in 2001 to ensure patient engagement in research. SURE are a pivotal part of the research infrastructure at the Trust. SURE’s main role is to ensure the value of our own sposnsored research trials, and the high quality of research documentation given to patients.

SURE members are patients, carers or members of the public with a big interest in research and on making clinical trials at the Trust patient friendly.

The Chairman and Deputy Chairman are also members of the Trust Operational Research Committee and are active researchers in their own right. They are involved in research studies and have already had their work published in scientific journals. A letter from the group on the low quality of patient information from multicentre commercial trials has been published by The Lancet in 2010.
