Welcoming New Patients and Groups

We at Involving London would just like to welcome New Patients, members of the public and Groups to our site.

Getting involved in research, may seem daunting in the beginning but we hope to show that anyone can get involved, below you will find information on how to get involved depending on who you are and what your experiences are. You can also have a look at our Opportunities to Get Involved Section, as there may be a project that you would like to get involved in.

Patients – If you are a patient and want to get involved in research, please go to the the Contact Us page where you can give more details about your condition, or ask us any questions you have in relation to getting involved in research.

Groups – Are you a member or organiser of a patient group and want to get involved in health or social care research? Often researchers want both patients, and local or National patient groups involved in their research projects. If you are from a patient group, you may want the whole group to get involved or you may have a few members on your group that want to get involved, if so encourage your group members to Contact Us with details of your group and the area of interest.

Public – Sometimes researchers are looking for general members of the public to get involved in their projects, for example they may be looking for older women aged 65+ or young men aged 18-24, rather than someone with a certain condition or disease. If you are a member of the public with an interest in health and social care research and want to get involved, then you may find it helpful to complete the Contact Us Page where you can tell us more about your experiences and or interests.

Carers – It is very important that carers are involved in research, and their role caring for people is recognised as important in the research process. If you are a carer and want to get involved in research, please go to the Contact Us page where you can give more details about your caring activities, or ask us any questions you have in relation to getting involved in research.
