Intensive Care Public Involvement Group

We're seeking fresh perspectives for our Head Injuries Public Involvement Group within the Intensive Care Unit.

We want to hear from people who have had a head injury in the past, and their families or carers to be part of an ongoing Patient Involvement Group, discussing aspects of upcoming clinical research studies in Intensive Care. The studies will look at possible new treatments for patients with head injuries in Intensive Care.

How you can help

  • Assist us in how best to communicate our studies to the families of the patients involved
  • Give feedback on patient study information that will be provided to a patient’s family about taking part in a research study
  • Join in on Public Involvement Group meetings on an ad hoc basis in the Bristol area (the first meeting will take place in the Learning & Research Centre at Southmead Hospital).

To ensure that you are not out-of-pocket, we will provide a £20 Love2Shop voucher for each meeting, helping to cover your out of pocket expenses such as parking costs.
