Surgical Patients Research User Group

We would like to hear from patients who have an interest in surgical research. This includes a broad range of areas including: orthopaedic surgery, plastic surgery, cardiac surgery, general surgery, neuro surgery. Our user group is open to patients, carers and people with a general interest in this area. If you, or someone you know, is interested in joining our patient group please contact us.

We are forming a group to help us develop patient focused research. To do this we will invite you to review proposed topics and progress of current studies. No experience required as training can be provided, just a genuine interest in helping develop future clinical care and contributing to our work. Regularity of the meetings will be decided with the group and time commitments will not be extensive.
