Thanks for visiting my blog. I am Chair of INVOLVE - the UK's national advisory group on public involvement - and the NIHR National Director for Patients and the Public in Research. I was CEO at the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) from 2006 until 2011 after fifteen years working in health communications and patient advocacy.
