The three London CLAHRCS are proud to present these awards, created to celebrate and promote patient and carer involvement in healthcare research and improvement. The awards honour the memory of Brian Turley, a dedicated and committed patient advocate and disability rights campaigner who sadly died unexpectedly in February 2016.

The awards honour the contribution of Brian Turley a tireless patient advocate and campaigner for disability rights

The awards aim to celebrate and promote patient and carer involvement in healthcare research and improvement – aiming to

  • Raise the profile of involvement
  • Showcase examples from practice
  • Promote reflection and shared learning
  • Discourage ‘tick box practice’

For all three awards, we welcome nominations from teams and individuals who are actively and currently involved or working with patients/carers and the wider community.

Winners will get the chance to work with artist Sandra Howgate to develop materials of their choice – a picture, flyer, poster or other graphic that represents their work
