People

We are a mixed group of teachers, researchers, administrators and people with lived experiences of various conditions who are passionate about involvement and engagement. We meet monthly to ensure that good quality involvement and engagement are embedded across the teaching and research activity that takes place at the School of Healthcare Sciences.
