SUPER (Service Users for Primary and Emergency Care Research) recruiting new members

SUPER is a group of public members and patients who work with PRIME Centre Wales on research about primary and emergency care and are looking for new members.

PRIME Centre Wales is a collaboration of researchers from four universities, undertaking internationally relevant research to benefit patient care.

SUPER members provide lay perspectives on developing, conducting and disseminating research about primary and emergency care services. This involvement helps to improve the relevance, quality and dissemination of research on these topics. Members meet quarterly, through meetings in person and online via zoom. At these meetings, researchers and SUPER members discuss research projects which are being developed or are underway.

SUPER is seeking people with the following skills, attitudes and experiences:

  • You have used primary or emergency care services, or you care(d) for someone who
    has needed these services;
  • You support the idea that patients and public members should be involved in
    research – that means helping to plan and carry out research and publicise findings;
  • You are able to send and receive emails and take part in discussions, including via
    zoom or other online video platforms;
  • You can attend day time, week day meetings. Online meetings usually last about two
    and a half hours, in the morning or afternoon. In-person meetings run between
    10.30am and 2.30pm, with refreshment breaks and lunch. During the COVID 19
    pandemic, they have been holding their meetings online through zoom but they hope to
    have face to face meetings again in the future.

SUPER particularly welcome people with different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, those who are working and those who are aged 18-45. Members are offered an honorarium when involved in research and any necessary expenses can be reimbursed.
