Play a part in vital research

Overuse of antibiotics in healthcare settings contributes to the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance. Do you, or someone you care for, take long-term antibiotics or have multiple or recurrent infections? Do you have experience of sepsis or taking antibiotics in hospital? Are you interested in how we can keep antibiotics working for future generations?

Help research that is tackling Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR)

Have you taken antibiotics for recurrent or long term infections, or care for someone who does? Are you interested in how we can safely reduce the use of antibiotics?

To keep antibiotics working for future generations, we need to use them carefully. As a member of this Get Vocal network you’ll have the opportunity to input into pioneering research which aims to explore, challenge and improve the way we give antibiotics.

We’re looking for a people from a range of different backgrounds and with different experiences. You don’t need to have been involved in health research before, just be happy to share your opinions.

How you can be involved

As a member of the network, there are lots of ways you can contribute, including being part of discussion groups and online surveys. Please note during this period of COVID-19 all activities are currently taking place online. If you do not have online access we can talk to you on the phone.

What to expect

We are committed to making our opportunities as inclusive and accessible as possible.

Our meetings and activities usually last for 1-2 hours, and we pay you for your time (£25 per hour). We want to support you to be involved and if there is anything that we can do to enable you to take part please let us know.
