Patient Involvement

The overall aim of the group is to champion the voice of the patient in transfusion issues, and to help develop and disseminate good quality information for patients. We hold a virtual meeting 4 times per year via Microsoft Teams and can give feedback about new patient leaflets or resources. We also help to flag up areas of unmet need and work to find solutions.
The PIWG is a diverse group, including people from blood transfusion (doctors, laboratory managers, transfusion practitioners), education specialists, and medical students as well as patient representatives from a range of backgrounds.
