The NIHR Oxford and Oxford Health BRCs are excited to be holding a Joint Open Day at Oxford Town Hall on Tuesday 5 July between 13:00-17:00.
Join us to find out about the amazing research taking place in Oxford, how it benefits NHS patients and how you can get involved in clinical trials.
The event will involve interactive stands featuring research carried out by our researchers in the Main Hall, as well as fascinating talks delivered in the Assembly Room.
The event aims to increase awareness among the public, patients and OUH staff of the benefits of (BRC-funded) medical research for NHS patients as well as promote public and patient engagement, participation and involvement in research. The event will help to raise the profile of the Oxford and Oxford Health BRCs, the NIHR brand and government funding for medical research as well as promote joint working with Oxford-based healthcare research networks.
If you would like to exhibit at the event with a stand or have any other queries please contact: Sarah.Marr@ouh.nhs.uk
