Community Infections Patient Panel

The patient and public involvement panel for community infections (which includes hepatitis B and C; tuberculosis; c-difficile; influenza and meningitis) was set up in October 2013 as part of the wider communicable diseases directorate.

Our aims

The purpose of the group is to ensure that the research and the services provided within the directorate are patient/carer focused and that patients/carers have the opportunity to influence the directorate’s strategy.

The group meets quarterly at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital site during lunchtimes.
