They have summarised some initial thoughts in the form of a short video and supporting document. After viewing the video and document, you will be asked to complete a questionnaire.

The deadline for completing the questionnaire is Sunday 28th February 2021.

A message from Associate Medical Director for Research, Professor John Isaacs:

"The city of Newcastle upon Tyne has the ingredients needed to develop and deliver world class research at scale: enthusiastic patients and citizens, passionate NHS and university staff, state-of-the-art clinical and research facilities and, critically, several organisations with strong and relevant reputations. This is important as participation and involvement in research are known to improve a range of patient outcomes. 

Whilst Newcastle already has an international research reputation, we are looking to update our Strategy to push our performance to the next level. As you will see, maximising Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement will play a key role – we would really value your thoughts on our ideas so far before we finalise our Strategy for the next 3 years. Thank you in advance!"

It is evident e.g. from geographical basis of vital statistics, that poverty and bad diet lead to conditions such as obesity and diabetes which often create the need for hospital treatment. Research into the causes of bad diet and the ways in which these causes can be tackled would be useful, but not spectacular. It would, for example, be helpful to analyse a supermarket family shop in Byker compared to one in an area a little more affluent, such as Walkergate. A study of NHS staff body mass indices would be a good way to start.
