Patient and Public Involvement

Patient and Public Involvement

Patient Organisations

The views and experiences of patients, their families and carers provide valuable insights that can help us provide informed advice to NHSScotland. Patient organisations can explain what it is like for patients to live with a particular medical condition and use health technologies (such as home monitoring equipment, a medical device or an educational programme) in the context of life in Scotland

Patient organisations can help us shape advice through peer review and by providing a patient organisation submission where appropriate. We accept patient organisation submissions from organisations which are constituted from local support groups to large national charities. We provide full support to any patient organisation who would like to contribute their expertise through our Public Involvement Advisor.

Public Partners

Involving the public in our work is an integral part of everything we do.  We have three public partners who are full members of SHTG. Public partners are volunteers who we train and support to provide a public perspective to our work.
