Remit of the group

A network of co-production based  research groups which aim to bring together service users, families/carers and staff in patient experience focused research. This focus is on lived experience of both service user/families and staff with projects both self-generated and tasked on behalf of the NHS Trust.  ResearchNet has groups in older adults, learning disability (with a St Georges group), families in children services and three borough based adult mental health  groups. The group is linked with the Lived experience network for staff who have experienced mental health conditions. ResearchNet was a pioneer of Experience Based Co-Design within mental health. Chaired by Dr Sue Holttum, Canterbury Christ Church University

Frequency of meetings
