There are a number of different ways in which patients, service users, carers and family members can get involved in the work of ARC South London.

Examples of ways to get involved include:

  • Joining an advisory group of patients who use specialist services
  • Participating in public events designed to create spaces for learning and reflection
  • Sharing your experiences of care and services to help generate new areas of enquiry
  • Feeding back on the design of new research trials or new technologies
  • Contributing to the development of new strategies for engaging the public.
