Get Involved

At the Health eResearch Centre (HeRC) we are committed to working with and involving you, patients and members of the public, in the work we deliver.

We want to know that the type of research we are delivering is relevant and that it responds to real issues and health problems and that it is involved by our most important customers - you!

In this section of the site you can find out more about the various ways we involve the public in our work.
