Sometimes it is the lot of the blogger to feel like the producer of ‘Have I Got News For You.’ One’s research can taken you to all sorts of places you didn’t know existed. Then again it can also turn up some gems.

Then, this evening I stumbled across this short article from ‘Optometry Today.’ It reports the findings of research conducted at Moorfields Hospital and published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology about the benefits of public involvement as seen from a patient perspective.
A range of benefits are reported by patients, it says, including increased patient satisfaction and confidence in their care. Health professionals also report educational benefits.
Haven’t been able to lay my hand on the original paper yet…
