We have three research panels:
- Pain panel – for people with experience of living with chronic pain
- Carers panel – for people with experience of caring for a relative or friend
- Healthy living panel – for people who struggle to keep active and/or lose weight
At research panel meetings, about 8-10 people with experience of these conditions or issues talk to researchers about their ideas and plans. Their feedback and views are used to improve research studies.
Panel meetings are informal and interesting, even enjoyable! You will meet other people with similar experiences and interests. Some people say they gain confidence as well as new skills and knowledge.
