How do I get involved?

  • We have a Public Advisory Group (PAG) specifically for the Health Services and Delivery Research Centre, which provides ongoing advice regarding public involvement for all the projects. This group meets around three times a year.
  • In addition to this group, we look for members of the public who have experience which can help us with a particular topic. Members of these groups usually contribute via telephone meetings and commenting on written documents, rather than coming to Sheffield.

We reimburse members of the public for their time, and also cover reasonable travelling expenses. We can offer training and support if you are new to a public advisory role.

Being a public advisor on health research – is it for me?

We don’t always know what topics we will be asked to research very far in advance, but will post on this website when we are looking for people with particular expertise – so keep an eye out! 

If you would like to be put on a list of people who would be interested in getting involved, please email Sue Baxter  (s.k.baxter@sheffield.ac.uk) or telephone 0114 222 0852 and let us know of any particular public health topics you might be interested in.
