Our Public Advisory Group (PAG) was formed in 2014 in recognition of the growing importance of patient and public involvement (PPI) at RDS. The group is consists of three members of the public who have considerable PPI experience and expertise: Jennifer Bostock (Chair), Monica Jefford and Roger Oliver.
The remit of the group is to provide strategic direction to the work of the PPI team at RDS London and to drive good PPI practice across the London region.
Amongst the initiatives the group has set up, the recently formed fast-track review service
has seen researchers benefit from involving members of the public in the development of their funding applications. The review service acts as an exemplar of the kind of services the group hopes to set up to support and motivate researchers to undertake PPI, particularly those who have little experience of PPI.
