An invitation from the Health Research Authority (HRA): #patientsasregulatorypartners

Invitation to contribute to workshops about the Health Research Authority’s  Public Involvement Strategy

The Health Research Authority is running two workshops to give people interested in our strategy an opportunity to discuss it and how we put it into action. We would like these to include researchers and research funders as well as patients and the public and those involved in developing and managing patient and public involvement
The first workshop will be on Monday November 25th 2013 at Friends House, Euston, London and the second on Tuesday November 26th 2013 in Birmingham at De Vere Venues Colmore Gate in the city centre near Snow Hill railway station.
Both workshops will be run from 11.00 to 14.00 (including lunch) and will be limited to around 40 participants.
The workshops will be mainly about how the HRA uses its influence to support public involvement in health research more widely but also include the opportunity to hear about and discuss other aspects of feedback received to date on the strategy.
If you are interested in attending please email us at hrapublicinvolvement@nhs.net.
We will cover travel and subsistence expenses for members of the public (as defined in Appendix A of our strategy) who attend the workshops. They may also be eligible for a payment for their contribution of £75. Anyone who is in receipt of state benefits should contact us in advance to discuss arrangements to cover both expenses and payment for time.
