Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) Regional Advisory Panel is currently recruiting new members

The East of England Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) Regional Advisory Panel is currently recruiting new members. They welcome applications from any clinicians, methodologists and allied health professionals with an applied health research track record.

RfPB is a regionally based responsive mode programme, funded by the National Institute for Health Research. The programme funds health services and public health research which is of relevance to the NHS. Each region convenes a regional advisory panel to commission health services research of relevance to that region.

Being a Panel member would involve attending the regional advisory panel meetings three times per year. Members are expected to familiarise themselves with all applications for consideration prior to the meeting and participate in discussion during the meeting. Members would be asked to assist in identifying peer reviewers for applications and may be asked to occasionally peer review some applications.

The East of England region is actively recruiting Panel members with expertise as trialists, qualitative expertise, general methodologists and clinicians. In addition, applications would be welcomed from nurses, physicians, general practitioners and health economists. However individuals from any discipline are welcome to apply.

Anyone who is interested in this opportunity should complete the RfPB Panel Membership Application Form form and email it to
