Patients & Public Involvement

Patient and Public Involvement is how we incorporate and integrate the views of patients, carers and the general public in our research. Public and Patient Involvement is a central function of the NIHR Maudsley Biomedical Research Centre (BRC). 

We can ensure our research is relevant to those it affects by involving people at each stage of the research process, from deciding on research questions through to publishing our findings.

The cluster ensures the NIHR Maudsley BRC involve service users and the public in our research at all stagesThis means service users and the public are involved in: 

  • setting research agendas
  • overseeing projects and programmes
  • and disseminating research.


Our team 

The Patient and Carer Involvement and Engagement cluster is led by Professor Dame Til Wykes and a team of research and clinical colleagues.
