Glasgow Clinical Research Facility (GCRF) believes in a model of integrated public engagement, patient involvement and research participation – by working together to improve healthcare through research.
It is our aim to make research involvement as accessible as possible and have a wide range of patients and public/lay representatives to steer our research and support researchers to identify and conduct high quality clinical research.

There is more information about Glasgow Clinical Research facility and taking part in research trials in the patient leaflets:
The leaflets also have maps and instructions on how to find the Queen Elizabeth University Hospital and the Glasgow Royal Infirmary Clinical Research Facilities.
There are several key areas of involvement for our patient and public partners:
- helping researchers improve public-facing literature, such as information sheets, adverts and reports to meet the needs of the public
- having an active partnership with researchers working on specific research in areas of interest to panel members
- assisting the research team in engaging with the wider public regarding participation and involvement in clinical research
- identify and facilitate opportunities to disseminate research initiatives, opportunities and findings to patients and the public
Opportunities for public involvement in NHS, public health and social care research can be found at www.peopleinresearch.org
