Opportunities for Patient & Public Engagement at St George's Hospital
One of the research teams at St George's hospital is offering three potential patient/public involvement opportunities to hospital users who have experience of, or an interest in, infection, use of antibiotics, resistance to antibiotics etc.
Should you wish to get involved, the hospital will tell you a little bit about the research currently being done on things like antibiotic resistance and infection, where they want to take the research in the future, and will then get your feedback and suggestions.
The three engagement events that are planned are as follows:
Workshops at St George's - March 2018
The objective of the workshops will be to find out what you think researchers should be looking into, and to hear your views and/or experiences, especially if you've been treated for an infection (particularly a resistant infection). The workshops will be held at St George's hospital and the following 4 dates are proposed (depending on popularity/availability):12 March13 March26 March27 March
Please see the attached letter for further information and to find out the exact times for each workshop.
