Public research engagement panel

Our newly formed Public Research Engagement Panel (PREP)

Our newly formed Public Research Engagement Panel (PREP) was created to influence the strategic direction of research and innovation at Leicester’s Hospitals.

Volunteers on the panel meet regularly and bring an independent public perspective to our work and may be involved in the following activities:

  • Represent research participants’ views on Boards
  • Act collectively as a consultation group to ensure due consideration of research in the design, planning, delivery and performance of clinical services
  • Work in teams to complete Trust-wide tasks
  • Develop links between existing public involvement groups in speciality areas at the hospitals, and with the Trust’s patient partners
  • Promote understanding of how research influences clinical service delivery
