Abstract: This article reports on an evaluation of the Thames Valley Cancer Network Consumer Research Partnership group which was formed in 2009. The evaluation took place between 2010 and 2011. It found that the group had been involved in: developing research proposals and helping with grant applications; writing patient information sheets for clinical trials; designing research questionnaires; improving recruitment; conducting interviews with other patients; and project management groups for individual research projects.
