1 Academic Unit of Reproductive and Developmental Medicine (AURDM) The Unit is part of the University of Sheffield and based within the Jessop Wing. Research within the Unit focuses on problems associated with women’s reproductive health and male infertility. Much of this work is undertaken in collaboration with doctors, midwives and nurses working in the Jessop Wing. Please visit our Unit website for further details of this exciting work: /research#reproduction Obstetrics, Gynaecology and Neonatology (OGN) Directorate This is based within the Jessop Wing and is one of the largest units in the UK. It is responsible for providing NHS services for female- specific health issues, for example pregnancy and birth (Obstetrics; 7,000 births each year;), problems with reproductive organs (Gynaecology: 30,000 out-patient visits annually), new-born babies (Neonatology; receiving premature babies from all over the Trent region) and men with fertility problems (Andrology). The OGN Directorate is interested in finding out more about these and other disorders so, in the long term, more effective treatments can be developed.

2 How often would I be expected to attend? Panel Meetings will be held quarterly. Any communication between meetings will be by and/or telephone if necessary. You may, if you wish, occasionally be involved in other meetings within the hospital. Do I need any qualifications? No, although experience of serving on a committee or links with patient networks would be an advantage. You will be given induction training with ongoing training and support. If required, you may have a mentor who may be a member of staff or an experienced Panel member. Why do it? People decide to get involved in research for many reasons including: personal knowledge and experience which you would like the research to consider. a chance to give something back and help influence research to benefit others. the opportunity to develop personal skills or to help to bring about improvements in health care. If I became a Panel member what would I have to do? You would be expected to take part in discussions at Panel meetings to ensure that patient and carer priorities are reflected. Other possible tasks include: considering if a research idea is of use to patients and the public. reviewing funding applications. producing/reviewing lay summaries. reviewing ethics applications. helping to develop patient information and NHS service evaluation literature. advising on recruitment of research participants into clinical trials. advising on how to share research data. representing the lay public at research meetings. considering if potential changes to NHS services benefit patients and public. What is the purpose of the Public Advisory Panel? The main purpose of the Public Advisory Panel is to ensure research within the University Unit (AURDM) and Jessop Wing (OGN Directorate) is patient-focused. Who can become a member of the Panel? Members of the panel can be former or current patients who have experience of any conditions/illnesses that are the research focus of the AURDM or would be treated within the OGN Directorate. Panel members may also be carers, partners or relatives of patients with any of the above conditions and will NOT be restricted to female members only. Male applicants are welcome. What would I get out of it? People who have been involved in research describe many benefits: learning about research and the topic being researched. developing practical skills. understanding why research matters. satisfaction of making a contribution and helping to improve services.
