Public Involvement searchable database

Public Involvement searchable database

This database contains the contact details of health-related voluntary groups in the Yorkshire and Humber region that are interested in working with clinicians and researchers to develop research proposals and grant applications. The database is searchable by location and by disease/health area.

All listed groups have agreed to have their contact details contained in this database. Researchers are encouraged to make contact with relevant groups directly. Once contact has been made, the group(s) will decide whether or not they wish to be involved with the development of the research.

This database will be updated regularly to ensure the most up to date contact details are included.
