'Power' in the co-production of health research

  • Have you been involved in the co-production of health research in the UK?  
  • Did you take part as a patient or member of the public?  

My name is Emily Ahmed, I am a PhD researcher, I want to understand the ways in which power is experienced and shared (or not shared) within co-produced UK health research and how this has been experienced by public contributors (those involved as patients or members of the public).  

I would like to do online Zoom interviews with public contributors (patients or members of the public) that have been involved in co-producing health research. If you would like to take part please fill in the form below.

To find out more please read the participant information leaflet or email

What do we mean by 'co-production'?

"Co-production: An approach in which researchers, practitioners and the public work together, sharing power and responsibility from the start to the end of the project, including the generation of knowledge. The assumption is that those affected by research are best placed to design and deliver it and have skills and knowledge of equal importance” NIHR, 2021  

"Sharing of the key principle and the one from which all others lead" Hickey, 2021
