Birmingham Rheumatology Research Patient Partnership (R2P2)

What is R2P2? 

We believe that patients should have a say in research that is potentially for their benefit. The Birmingham Rheumatology Research Patient Partnership (R2P2) is a group of patients who support research studies at the University of Birmingham, Sandwell and West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust and University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust.

What is involved in being an R2P2 research partner?

Within the Rheumatology Research Group we recognise the importance of involvement of patients and members of the general public in all aspects of the research process, including initial project development and grant applications, the design and implementation of the studies as well as their dissemination. As a member of R2P2 you can get involved in existing research projects as well as being involved in the set-up of new research
