Join the Prevention and Early Detection Patient & Public Review Panel

What needs to get done

Attend and take an active part in 2 virtual panel meetings per year. Constructively sharing your thoughts and listening to other people’s opinions.

You'll need to read the funding applications, involvement plans and lay summaries beforehand, thinking about any constructive feedback in advance and relevance of this research to you as patients/public.

You'll be asked to respect Cancer Research UK’s confidentiality and raise any conflicts of interest if you have any.

How your contribution will help

You’ll help make sure we’re reviewing new research applications to a high standard, providing valuable, a non-expert perspective on the submissions before we make funding decisions.

The panel will look at the relevance of research from a patient/public prospective and give thoughts on the potential impact this research could have for future generations.

What you will get out of it

We’re arranging an induction day for all the panel to meet (virtually). You’ll also receive an induction pack and you’ll receive on-going support from the Prevention and Early Detection programme managers.

In accordance with our involvement payment policies, Panel and Committee members can claim payment (honorarium) in recognition of the time spent attending virtual and in-person meetings and for completing the meeting pre-work and reviewing applications.
