How can I get involved?

Ways you can be involved

You can get involved in clinical research in a variety of ways, not just as a trial participant.

Some people decide to continue to be involved with research after they have taken part in a research project. Some people might not have taken part in a project, before but want to be involved in a different way.

Patient panels have been set up to ensure that research carried out at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is patient focused. To find out more about patient panels and opportunities to get involved please visit the Clinical Research & Innovation Office website.

You can find out more about ways to get involved in research on the NIHR website.
