Posted on in Research

People interested in medical research being carried out Teesside and North Yorkshire are being invited to play an exciting role in its development.

South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is holding an open day to encourage people to become Patient Research Ambassadors to increase awareness and understanding of research projects the public can be involved in.

The ambassadors will work alongside the Research and Development (R&D) team and the wider Trust to make sure it meets the needs of people taking part in research.

The open day will be held on Thursday 15 September 2016, 10am – 1pm, at the South Tees Institute of Learning, Research& Innovation (LRI) at The James Cook University Hospital.


Julie Rowbotham, research and development, said: “We’re looking for people who want to help medical research by encouraging patients to get involved. Without research care and treatments could not advance.

“There’s no age limit and we want people from all communities and ethnic backgrounds to come to our open day where they can learn more about the initiative and listen to inspiring talks from our guest speakers.”
