Article by Cancer Research UK Chief Executive, Harpal Kumar

Welcome

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am Chair of INVOLVE - the UK's national advisory group on public involvement - and NIHR National Director for Public Participation and Engagement in Research. I was CEO at the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) from 2006 until 2011. My full profile can be found on the 'Biography' page. The views on here are all personal ones unless otherwise stated. I hope you enjoy some of the things I write and/or find a useful link or two along the way.

publicservice.co.uk is running a piece today by Cancer Research UK‘s Chief Executive, Harpal Kumar.  I thought his second bullet point under policy priorities re: enabling patient groups to contribute to health challenges quite interesting.  It would be good to understand a bit more what he means by this.  Cancer Research UK is more research funder than patient group.  But it has a clear role as both funder and influential charity in helping to remove the barriers to patients participating in, and become part of, the work to meet such challenges.
