Patients, Carers and the Public

What we do

Working in partnership with patients and the wider public to deliver better care pathways

Working with patients and the wider public is vital to the work that we do at NIHR Leeds MIC to assess the feasibility and effectiveness of in vitro diagnostic (IVD) tests.

Patients and the public bring a wealth of ‘lived experience’ and provide valuable perspectives on the way IVD tests should be developed. We simply could not do what we do without them.

We have a dedicated Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) Group led by Stephanie Roberts, our Centre Manager, to help identify unmet needs and gain feedback on early stage innovations. The group meets regularly and delivers research feedback that adds tangible benefit and value to the NHS.
