Patient Alliance Group
Engaging with patients is key to successfully improving services within the NHS. Listening to patient experiences, suggestions and concerns is essential. For many years, patients have been involved in the teaching and research within the Manchester Centre for Genomic Medicine.
As a new initiative, we are organising this patient involvement into a new Patient Alliance Group (PAG). This group is designed to support, advise and enhance clinical, education and research activities across the department.
Up to 20 patients will be invited to join the PAG for a maximum period of three years. These patient representatives will be invited to attend an annual meeting to learn about activities in the department. During the year, they will be asked to provide feedback or get involved in a number of activities in the department related to teaching, service or research.
If you are interested in the PAG, please ask to speak to your doctor or genetic counsellor.
