The Service User’s and Carers Forum

Help shape our research

The Service User’s and Carers Forum is a group of people who have experience of using the healthcare services, or have had caring responsibilities for those who have.

The forum exists to:

  • Provide peer support for service users and carers involved in any aspect of health and social care education.
  • Share our wealth of expertise and experiences for mutual benefit
  • Improve the involvement of service users and carers in the education of our students
