Working with Patient Research Champions

With many Trust volunteers returning to our hospitals, we have re-introduced Patient Research Champions in our hospitals. For those unaware, the role of a PRC is to promote health research from a patient’s point of view, support our research staff in the tasks they undertake and help us to give our patients the best experience of taking part in research at Barts Health possible. This could include meeting and greeting trial participants, bringing them refreshments, or handing out PRES surveys.

With one already placed, we also have two new PRCs for whom we are currently seeking volunteering opportunities. They have completed the volunteer registration process and pre-placement checks, so they are ready to begin! You can find out more about the new PRCs in their PRC Profiles, including their preferred hospitals and availability.

Contact James at if you would like to work with one of our new PRCs.
