Public Health Wales looking for Two Patient and Public Involvement Members

11 January 2021

This research project is a partnership between Public Health Wales WCVA, What Works Wellbeing and the University of Bristol

Public Health Wales are looking for two Patient and Public Involvement members for a research project briefly outlined below:

Public Health Wales funded by the Health Foundation (Covid-19 research funding) is looking to recruit 2 Patient and Public (PPI) members of the steering group which would involve attending three (remote/virtual) meetings across the 12 month period (first one in January, second in June/July and last one in December), and it would be in an advisory capacity. This research project is a partnership between Public Health Wales WCVA, What Works Wellbeing and the University of Bristol to understand the role of community-led action as a protective factor against widening health inequalities during, and in recovery from COVID-19.

In particular the two PPI  members would:

  • Add their input and insights to help shape the work going forward and sense-check it.
  • Have a regular opportunity to coproduce input in each step of the research cycle – from design to dissemination.
  • Help to actively coproduce the research methods that we will use, by offering insights into what is actually happening on the ground.

Inclusion criteria:

– Aged 18 years or above.

– Living and/or working in Wales.

– Basic IT skills.

– Experience in using Microsoft Teams basic features (or Zoom / Skype if needed).

– Grassroots volunteer; informal or formal volunteer; worker in the third sector; general member of the public.

Each meeting will last approximately 2.5 hours, plus approximately an extra 30 min to read the agenda/briefing information before each meeting.

Therefore, the two PPI will be asked to commit to a total of 9 to 10 hours over the 12 months. There is the opportunity for some remuneration, within the research budget.

 Please contact Chiara Tuveri at Public Health Wales for further information [email protected]

The closing date for participants is 13th January.
