What is Patient Involvement?

We have a variety of current involvement opportunities which you can get take part in. In doing so, you will help us beat cancer.


Current opportunities

Patient involvement is the processes of working together with patients, carers and loved ones, to shape, influence or guide projects as they develop. At Cancer Research UK, we actively involve people affected by cancer in our work. The insight they bring is helping us to beat cancer while ensuring that we’re meeting the needs of patients and their families.

Find ways that suit you to use your experience of cancer to make a real difference. You can share your story to raise awareness, use your influence to persuade your MP to support our campaigns and share your views on our work to help shape it.
