Remit of the group
We have two main ways in which public contributors can get involved. Firstly as public reviewers, who consider topics being developed for commissioning or research applications submitted by academic researchers. We also have public members on our all of our prioritisation panels and funding boards, some of whom will deal with research relating to mental health.
Reviewing opportunities are open to all who express an interest. Selection for public membership of boards and panels is by open competition.
For all PPI opportunities at NESCC, please see: www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/ppi/opportunities-nets
Frequency of meetings
Reviewing is an intermittent opportunity, depending on the research topics or applications received.
Panel and board meetings take place three times per year.
Who can consult the group?
The public contributor roles in the NETSCC-hosted programmes are to support the research funding programme secretariat. Researchers needing assistance with the PPI element of their applications should consult their regional RDS or INVOLVE
