The main benefit to you will be the satisfaction of knowing that you are helping to improve the training of those who will work in the NHS, and thus ultimately improve the service that the NHS is able to deliver to all patients.
We hope you will also enjoy the experience of coming to the University and engaging with the staff and students, and also with other PPI representatives.
The time involved should be relatively little, so the fees will not be enough to live on, or to make you rich. But we hope they will be an adequate compensation for the time and effort you commit.
This is not the forum for you to seek medical advice, or to seek to make changes to your medical care. For these, you should use the normal channels of the NHS, including your GP, the wider medical team involved in your care, NHS website and helplines, or your pharmacist.
