For Public

International Clinical Trials Day

International Clinical Trials Day takes place on 20th May each year.  This year we tied in our celebrations for International Clinical Trials Day with the celebrations marking the 70th birthday of the NHS on 5th July.

There were lots of hands-on activities and demonstrations from healthcare organisations across Sheffield. Activities included meeting the healthcare robots, taking the carbohydrate challenge, finding out how our hearts work and exploring a vintage ambulance!

There was also the chance to chat to members of the public who are involved in research, and to researchers themselves.


Patient and Public Involvement Tea Party

To thank patients and public for their valuable contribution to health research, on 4th July we hosted a tea party for members of our patient and public involvment panels/forums.

There was plenty of opportunity to network, share best practice and catch up with members of other panels.

There was also a presentation by Dr Christine Smith, Programme Manager at NIHR CLAHRC Yorkshire and Humber.


Patient and Public Involvement Training Day

Each year we hold 2 training days for patients and the public about getting involved in research.

The next training day will be split into two sessions to accommodate those new to research, and those with more experience.

Date of next training: TBC (late October/early November)
