Trans-Humber Consumer Research Panel

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The Trans-Humber Consumer Research Panel, formerly known as the North and East Yorkshire and Northern Lincolnshire Consumer Research Panel, is a patient advocacy group in the north of England which has the aim of representing the views of health consumers (patients and carers) at all stages of the medical research process (from hypothesis generation, through clinical trial management to the dissemination of results) [1].


Public and patient involvement in healthcare research is seen as important because "greater public involvement can lead to better research and clearer health outcomes, and can save money. A recent study ... reported that public involvement in research helps increase recruitment to all types of research. In clinical research it helped to ensure acceptability of trials, and participants felt them to be ethical, well designed and to have relevant outcome measures. It was also found to be of value in qualitative research where participants are asked to share their views and experiences." [2].

The motto of the panel is Promoting public and professional partnership in medical research.


It was formed in December 2004.


The geographical scope of the panel encompasses East Yorkshire, North Yorkshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire, and meetings are held at Castle Hill Hospital.

The panel is run on a voluntary basis and has strong working relationships with medical researchers at The University of Hull, the Hull York Medical School, and within the Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust and the Humber and Yorkshire Coast Cancer Research Network [3].
