Mapping Regional Infrastructure for Public Involvement

In this project I was asked by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) to understand the existing public partnership networks within 3 regions in England.  I used on-line searches and discussions with regional public involvement teams.

It was very difficult to find consistent information in the 3 regions because there was no central point where information is recorded and NIHR networks were very variable within regions.  Outside of the NIHR, different language for public partnerships makes finding information more complicated.  In interviews teams described other challenges that might work against setting up regional public partnership networks, such as a lack of PP workforce and no current incentives for working together

The review proposed that additional resource needed to be provided to regions to build PP networks.
