Patients, public and carers

Our overall aim is to ensure that better diagnostics are delivered more quickly for the benefit of patients and their health.

Since the public are directly affected by our work, and we are publicly funded through the NIHR, it is vitally important that everyone has a say in what work we undertake and how the research is conducted.

Without public volunteers giving up their time, it would not be possible for us to find ways to improve healthcare.
