Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE)

The Leeds Radiotherapy PPIE Group

The Leeds RRG has a well-established Patient Public Involvement and Engagement (PPIE) group which was launched in February 2018 and which includes all RadNet Leeds activity. In short the mission of our PPIE group is to:

  • Engage and involve patients on a quarterly basis to gain feedback on clinical research projects.
  • Provide a high-quality environment where patients feel able to speak openly to shape decisions behind our research.
  • Embed our profile within a wider local network, creating further opportunities for patients to learn, connect, and be part of a dynamic research community.

We are fortunate to meet with a core group of regular patient contributors who give input onto the design of clinical trials. Our PPIE work strongly emphasizes the patient perspective on Quality of Life (QoL) outcomes and explores the acute and long term side effects of RT.
