South Londoners urged to make their voices heard through NIHR survey
A patient and public interaction and engagement manager is calling on south Londoners to make their voices heard through an annual research survey.
The NIHR’s Participant in Research Experience Survey (PRES) asks thousands of people in England who volunteered for health research to give feedback on their experience so that improvements can be made.
The NIHR is expecting CRN South London to achieve 1,400 responses in this financial year and at the time of writing the Network has currently received 1,240 responses.
CRN South London’s Patient and Public Interaction and Engagement Manager, Neha Modha, thanked the health and care professionals who deliver PRES at sites across south London. She said:
“We are well on our way to hitting our local target of 1,400 responses to the survey for this financial year. It has been great to see so many research participants being given the opportunity to give feedback about their experience of being involved in a trial. Our health and care partners have played an integral role in helping us get this far.
“The Network is very grateful to everyone who has provided feedback via PRES, as it gives us the opportunity to work across the system to make people's experience of research even better in future.
“We want as many people as possible to complete this survey, and I’d strongly urge south Londoners to make their voices heard by giving us feedback about their research experience.”
