How can I be involved in research?

There are several ways in which you can become involved in a research study in Leicester.

  1. Co-author. This is when a member of the public helps to create a study with a researcher. This individual is also referred to as the ‘Lay Member’
  2. Lay Member on a Board or Executive Committee. This role brings a vital outside perspective to the groups responsible for clinical research
  3. Patient advisory group (PAG) member. This means that a member of the public can be part of a group which shares its views on a proposed study or existing and new processes within clinical research
  4. Research participant. This is a patient or member of the public who volunteers to be in a clinical trial
  5. Research volunteer. This is a member of the public who volunteers to work within Leicester’s Hospitals but specifically to talk to people about clinical research.

The Research and Innovation team at Leicester’s Hospitals are the main point of contact for members of the public who are interested in clinical research.

We hold on to your contact details and put you in touch when the role or opportunities within the specialty area that you are interested in, become available.

We also like to send you news to keep you updates about clinical research within Leicester’s Hospitals.

Not all of these ways to become involved are currently active but if you are interested in finding out more, or would like to talk to a member of our team, please complete the form below:
