Our Vision

Wendy Mitchell our Patient Research Ambassador says:-

When you’re given a diagnosis, whatever that condition might be, you might feel like your life is falling apart, feel worthless and of no use to anyone anymore. Participation in research can offer people hope for the future. Being involved makes you feel valued as you’re contributing to possible new developments – you could be helping future generations. I have Alzheimer’s Disease, for which there is currently no cure, and without willing volunteers to test new theories there will continue to be no cure or knowledge of how best to live with dementia.

We have to normalise involvement in research, but to do this we must have the backing of all healthcare professionals, as talking about research has to be normalised too. Promoting research doesn't have to eat into anyone's budget. The NHS can’t move forward without research and research can’t move forward without willing volunteers. Without research we can't change the future!   Wendy Mitchell (Patient Research Ambassador)

And our Trust Research strategy says:-

"Patient and public involvement in research goes beyond that of being a research participant, e.g. includes contributing to research proposals."
