Patient Involvement and Public Engagement

Find out how we’re using public engagement to improve patient outcomes, bridging the gap between our research and the wider scientific communities.

Alongside research and education, public engagement is essential for modernising and transforming research. Engaging with and learning from public audiences aids in training the next generation of researchers and clinicians, and helps inform the wider medical and scientific community.

By involving patients and embracing their insight through online or face-to-face events and activities, we can push boundaries and level up standards, increase clinical trial recruitment, and improve clinical practices.

Current Activities

We manage RadNet City of London’s Public Engagement strategy and activities. Our committees aims to engage with members of the general public and patients in discussions around radiotherapy to:

  • Determine public perceptions of radiotherapy
  • Support the public to make informed decisions about radiotherapy
  • Inform how we design therapies, particularly with regards to radiation oncology for children and novel radiation therapies
  • Understand mental health issues that arise in patients receiving radiotherapy
  • Disseminate cutting edge radiation research carried out using novel and targeted methods to communicate the themes and messages above

Beyond our Core PE Committee, we also have a wider PE Advisory Committee, which meets every six months to review our public engagement strategy.
