Our Public Advisory Group (PAG)

Our PAG members are actively involved throughout the research life-cycle, from shaping grant applications to communicating results.

Engaging with and Involving the Public

The EAVE II Public Advisory Group (PAG) has fifteen members from a wide range of backgrounds and Patient Public Involvement (PPI) experience across Scotland, England and Wales. They are actively involved in:

  • shaping our research grant applications;
  • analysis design;
  • project steering;
  • results interpretation and dissemination;
  • contributing to our understanding of the public's perspective of COVID-19.

Together we hold regular virtual meetings and two of our members sit on the Trial Steering Group.

What our PAG say about EAVE II

“It is more than clear that pandemics will continue to arrive in the future, and Scotland needs to be better prepared for these occurrences.  I fully expect that EAVE II will form an essential cornerstone of that preparedness. Many future health benefits will arise from its ongoing deployment as an invaluable rich research resource of patient data.”

David WPAG Co-lead and Steering Group Member

Using population data means that, as with PPI, more people’s stories get included. That makes any decisions based on the research not only more accurate, but also fairer – whether that is for people from an ethnic minority, people living with suppressed immune systems, or people living in more deprived areas of the country.
