Trauma User Group

The Trauma User Group is a group of people who have used the Trauma Service as patients, family, carers or friends.

The aim is to actively involve patients, carers and the public in discussions on service developments and potential research studies and listen to their views and opinions.

The three main activities for the Trauma User Group are:

  • review of study information sheets
  • discussion of ideas for studies from conception to implementation
  • opportunities for members to join advisory groups.

For information on how to join, please contact:

Members are asked for their views about the Trauma Service a few times a year, usually by telephone, email or letter.

Sometimes they are asked to join a group and attend meetings about a specific project. The Trauma User Group usually meets once a year.

If I join, will I be paid?

No. your contribution would be voluntary. Travel expenses are available if you are receiving benefits.

What happens to the information I supply?

All information we collect is considered as part of the evidence used to make decisions about how the Trauma Service develops. Every six months we will let you know our findings through a newsletter.

Does the user group deal with complaints?

No. Complaints about clinical care / treatment are dealt with by our Patient Experience Team or Patient Advice and Liaison Service (PALS).
