More about the group (optional)
The group was set up in 2009 and meets 6 times a year to discuss how to continue to increase service user and carer involvement in research. The group involves service users and carers who act as a link between both local and national groups. There is also representation at each meeting from one of the Clinical Studies Officers within the Mental Health team to ensure good strong working links. Some of the work undertaken so far includes checking over Patient Information Sheets and Consent Forms for researchers, training of Clinical Studies Officers and involvement with recruitment of the Mental Health team staff.
