Currently there are number of opportunities for the public to contribute on the Health Technology Assessment (HTA) Prioritisation panels
These are key roles which ensure that the public are actively involved in discussions and decisions on the prioritisation of our health research. As a patient/public panel member you will help to identify and raise issues from the perspective of patients and the public that are relevant to the research.
The HTA Programme produces independent research about the effectiveness of different healthcare treatments and tests for those who use, manage and provide care in the NHS. It identifies the most important questions that the NHS needs the answers to by consulting widely with these groups, and commissions the research it thinks is most important through different funding routes.
If you feel that you could help the HTA programme by sharing your knowledge and experiences by becoming a Public member of one of the HTA Panels, then please visit the NETSCC websitehttp://www.nets.nihr.ac.uk/ppi/opportunities-nets where you can find out more, including the information pack and how to apply.
If you have any queries please contact the NETSCC PPI team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 023 8059 9302.
