Involving and engaging members of the public with diverse backgrounds, interests, and levels of expertise is vital to us. Only by including a broad range of voices on health data research can we gain a clear understanding of the public’s wants and needs. Whether you have experience with health data research, or not, or are completely new to it, we want to hear from you! 

If you want to learn more about health data research and how it works, you can view our health data research explained page. ​

HDR UK Voices

Public Advisory Board member chatting with HDR UK teamHDR UK Voices is a growing network of people who want to use their voices to help shape and influence our work. Each week, we let our network know about new opportunities they can get involved with across HDR UK. They play a vital role in advising us about how we access data, what research they feel matters and more by:

  • Providing insights via surveys and workshops
  • Sharing thoughts and ideas at local and national events
  • Contributing to specific projects and programmes

“HDR UK aims to ensure that health data science produces results that are accessible to and valued by the public, so there’s never been a more important time to get involved.”


– Angela Coulter, Chair of HDR UK Public Advisory Board
