“The RDS YH PPI Lead provided specific advice on enhancing the PPI content of our proposal, following reviewer comments on our outline proposal. Our PPI strategy was noted by the HTA review panel as ‘this is the best inclusion of patients and public inclusion I’ve seen on any application and I’m very pleased to see it’.”
