Birmingham Rheumatology Research Patient Partnership (R2P2)

Birmingham Rheumatology Research Patient Partnership (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.
