Patient & Public Involvement (PPI)

Welcome to our new Patient Research Ambassadors


Welcome to David, Tanya & Ron who have joined Royal Papworth Hospital as Patient Research Ambassadors to help promote health research from a patient point of view. We aim to involve both patients and NHS researchers to recognize the importance of research in delivering health care. The first meeting of the Papworth Ambassadors was held at the end of the March.
What is a Patient Research Ambassador?
A Patient Research Ambassador is someone who promotes health research from a patient point of view. They could be a patient, service user, carer or lay person who is enthusiastic about health research and is willing to communicate that to other patients, the public, as well as other healthcare professionals.
