Rosemary Nicholls

Public Advisory Group Member

I enjoy being involved in research as a member of the public because it offers me opportunities to learn and to contribute to improving the health of our communities. I'm able to put my lived experience to good use as well as develop my ideas by considering the views of younger volunteers and professionals.

The NIHR Innovation Observatory Public Advisory Group (PAG) play a key role in our patient and public involvement, engagement (PPIE) and outreach. The PAG guide strategic and operational aspects of PPIE and outreach. Operational aspects include, for example, advising on how best to strengthen involvement by patients, service users, carers, community organisations and the wider public in horizon scanning projects or planning appropriate training for PPIE and outreach team members. Strategic aspects include, for example, taking an overview of the PPIE and outreach activities occurring across research programmes, to ensure we deliver against our ambitious co-produced PPIE Strategy.
