The Patient Voice Grant Advisory Network
What is the Patient Voice Grant Advisory Network?
The Patient Voice Grant Advisory Network was established in 2021 to make sure people affected by blood cancer are at the very centre of all the research funding decisions we make at Blood Cancer UK.
The network is made up of approximately 28 volunteers from across the UK with a lived experience of blood cancer, either personally or as a friend or family member of someone affected by blood cancer.
What does the Patient Voice Grant Advisory Network do?
The Patient Voice Grant Advisory Network was originally established just for the review of our project grant funding scheme, however today members of the network get involved in reviewing any type of funding application we receive (once it has gone through the proper checks and is deemed to be eligible).
A few members of the group will also represent the feedback received from the whole of the network at the relevant funding or review committee(s); including the Research Funding Committee and Clinical Trials Review Committee.
How can I learn more about or join the Patient Voice Grant Advisory Network?
Thank you for your interest in the Patient Voice Grant Advisory Network; your experience of blood cancer could help shape our work.
We are always looking for new members to help keep us on track.
