Patient Support Groups

Members of patient groups provide people living with the same conditions or similar with practical and emotional support.

They are also valued contributors to the research process, providing researchers with their own unique lived experience and perspective, and their views on proposed research: are the ideas acceptable and/or feasible?

Some of the patient support groups we work with are below; but there are many more.

If you are a group organiser/chair of a patient support group and you’d like someone from our Patient and Public Involvement team to visit your group and talk about how you could get more involved in research, please contact
