Staff Profile

Helen Burchmore

Associate Research Fellow in Public and Patient Involvement

Kath Maguire

I joined PenCLAHRC in 2015 to work with the Public and Patient Invovlement team on ensuring high-quality and effective involvement of the public and service users with the health service and medical research being conducted in the South West Region. I have been involved as a member of the public in a wide range of such activity, and recently worked for a few years within NHS England, supporting a change in attitude to PPI by CCGs and Trusts. Now I hope to turn over a decade of practical experience into a valuable resource for the team and their wider communities, academic and public. I am also a EUPATI Fellow, having graduated in December 2016.
