Excellence in Health Research

Get involved

There are different ways that people interested in health research can be involved with CHSS, for example:

  • Being kept up to date with our research and activities by signing up to our newsletter
  • Following us on Twitter
  • Being involved in the development of our research to make sure that the service user voice is heard

Involvement is different to participating in research. For example, you can:

  • contribute to research ideas
  • comment on recruitment
  • feedback on research information and consent forms
  • be part of a group that manages a research project
  • become a peer researcher
  • help to analyse results
  • disseminate results to people that need to know about them
