Representatives from Health and Social Care, the NHS, the Universities, the Voluntary and Community sector and local Consultancies meet quarterly to discuss methodologies, challenges and successes. Recent topics of discussion have included Patient and Public Involvement, Ethics and Training opportunities, with networking and idea-exchange prioritised in the meetings. We also have an online presence through a Google discussion group that is open to all members of the network, regardless of whether they can attend meetings in person or not.
