How to get involved

Service users, carers and fellow professionals can get involved with research and development at Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in a number of ways, whether this is participating in one of our National Research Projects or joining our dedicated service user research group, the Help from Experts by Experience for Researchers (HEER) group. We would also encourage you to register your interest in taking part in dementia research through the Join Dementia Research service.

Due to national guidance, most of our studies are paused at present in order to reduce the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19). Thank you for your patience at this time. Please note we are still conducting research which does not involve direct contact.

You can watch a video below produced by the Trust and the National Institute of Health Research, which details the experiences of our service users who have taken part in research.

More information on how you can involved is available below.
