New guidance on what it is to be a public co-applicant in research launched by @NIHRINVOLVE @HRA_Latest and @NHSRDForum

According to the recent national survey of people's experiences of being involved in National Institute for Health Research (NIHR)*, one in five patients, carers and members of the public told us they had been a 'co-applicant' in research.
