PRIMER  is a group of patients, carers and members of the public who work closely with researchers in primary care at Manchester University, drawing on their life experiences to bring the voice and perspective of the public/patient into the planning and conduct of research.

Carole spoke at our PPI conference in Galway, describing an excellent example of the contribution that this group of lay people are making to research in primary care.  Here is Carole describing a range of ways in which she and the group have made a positive contribution to research and how they have made a difference.
