The Patient Public Group
It is fundamental to the UK Colorectal Intelligence Hub that individuals either at risk of, or diagnosed with cancer are its heart, and that both patients and members of the public have confidence in the secure use of their data.
The Bowel Cancer Intelligence UK Patient-Public Group UK (BCI UK PPG) is a team of highly engaged independent patient advocates who engage with and represent the colorectal cancer population. Their role is to ensure that the Hub is used for the purposes patients deem to be the most important and acceptable to the general public.
The BCI PPG provide expert patient input into a number of research programmes and have a dedicated website.
