General News

The Patient and Public Involvement and Engagement team have set up a new Young People’s Advisory Group (YPAG).

At Guy's & St. Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust we have formed a Young People's Advisory Group to enable young people to get more involved in research.

  • A unique experience to include on your CV or UCAS form
  • Opportunities to hear about ground-breaking research
  • Meeting other people with the same interest as you
  • Being able to hear the professionals share their experience and knowledge

What would I have to do?

  • Working with other young people and giving advice and ideas for different projects
  • Attending meetings every few months at Guy's Hospital
  • Taking part in discussion over email or Whatsapp
  • Listening to talks from researchers

How to get involved

  • You must be aged 14-18 and attend school in Lambeth, Southwark or Lewisham
