This week the NIHR Global Health Research Unit on Global Surgery (GSU) has been busy connecting with patients and members of the public at the University of Birmingham. At a celebration event for patient involvement in research across campus, patients met the GSU team to learn more about global surgery, engage with key facts about access to surgical care in low and middle income countries, and even try their hand at keyhole surgery!

The Global Surgery team are on the lookout for members of the public and patients who have lived, received healthcare, or have family links to particular low and middle-income countries, to be part of a UK-based patient involvement group to support our research studies.
