Birmingham Conference and Events Centre

To say THANK YOU for your involvement in health and care research, we are holding a celebration event for all our patient and public contributors.

You can meet other public contributors, engage in fun activities, share ideas, learn more about public involvement and how your contributions make a real difference to health and care research.

Refreshments, including a buffet lunch, will be provided.

A full invitation will follow shortly including how to register.


At the University of Birmingham, patients and the public are involved throughout our research. We work in partnership with people from all backgrounds to bring different perspectives to the way that research studies are designed, carried out and how the results are shared. We have lots of opportunities to get involved in all aspects of research, so there's something to suit everyone.

Here we signpost to training, support and resources for both public contributors and research teams. Find out more about Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) in the College of Medical and Dental Sciences at the University of Birmingham.
