Welcome to VOICE at Imperial

Imperial College London became the first collaborator to join VOICE in January 2019, with the ambition to improve and facilitate the way we involve patients and members of the public in our research.

Imperial College London works with the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust to undertake world-class experimental medicine research to improve patient care. At the centre of this partnership is the NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre (BRC), which aims to transform scientific discoveries into clinical practice.

The public, including patients and carers, are at the heart of what we do. Through VOICE, we hope to capture the wealth of experience and valuable perspectives that only patients and members of the public can offer on the way our research is designed and delivered.

Community involvement during COVID-19

The Patient Experience Research Centre (PERC) at Imperial College London are developing research to explore and understand people’s views about, experiences of and behavioural responses to the new coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK and elsewhere.

To guide that effort and to help inform COVID-19 research and responses more broadly - for example in mathematical modelling and policy - we launched an online community involvement initiative on VOICE that sought rapid, early insight from members of the public and aimed to establish a network for ongoing community engagement.
