Patient participation is a unique partnership between patients, GPs and their practice which is essential to delivering high-quality, responsive care. As such, we support politicians, policy makers, health professionals, academics and the public at large by undertaking research in favour of patient participation.

This work has seen us provide dozens of recommendations to the NHS, which have gone on to shape standards and policy; collaborate, advise and influence some of the most significant health organisations in the United Kingdom; and champion the patient voice in health issues, policy development and academic research for more than 40 years.
