Lay involvement

Service Users for Primary and Emergency care Research


PRIME Centre Wales has recently recruited members of the public and patients to join a new lay member group who will work with PRIME Centre Wales to support research activities, particularly research development.

The group is called SUPER – Service Users for Primary and Emergency care Research. 

The group includes people with diverse backgrounds and experiences to reflect the diverse perspectives of people who live in Wales.

SUPER supports PRIME Centre Wales by providing lay perspectives on developing, conducting and disseminating research about primary and emergency care services to strengthen the relevance, quality and dissemination of research on these topics. 

The group is able to comment on all aspects of research development led by PRIME including research ideas, draft documents, dissemination plans and also how to involve patients and public members in carrying out a funded study. If you are a PRIME researcher and have a research idea or proposal in development, please use SUPER to gain patient and public involvement in your project.
