Category 3 – Patient/Service User/Carer with influence

This award will recognise an individual who has actively connected service users, clinicians, researchers and other healthcare professionals and promoted the opportunities in collaborative working to improve research and healthcare.

What the judging panel will be looking for:

1. Activity that has been designed and delivered with the input of patients and carers from as an early stage as possible

2.Attempts to involve and engage people who are less likely to be heard but have much to say for example children and young people, those with learning difficulties or sensory impairments and people from minority communities including carers

3.Reflection and a desire to improve the practice of patient and carer involvement moving it away from a tick-box exercise to a two-way learning process
