3CTN’s leadership strongly believes in the value of patient and public involvement (PPI) and is committed to ensuring that PPI is embedded in every aspect of the 3CTN framework, both at the Coordinating Centre level and at Network sites across the country.

One key part of 3CTN’s PPI efforts are the recruitment of Patient Representatives, who contribute a crucial perspective to clinical trials by providing feedback, insight, expertise and support towards trial activities and initiatives.
