Patient and public involvement network

PATIENT NETWORK LARGE BUTTONThe SIGN Patient and Public Involvement Network is a ‘virtual’ group of patients, carers, members of the public and patient involvement staff from within NHS Scotland. We currently have approximately 400 members who help us by:

  • telling us about the issues relevant to patients for each guideline topic;
  • nominating people who could become involved in guideline development;
  • commenting on guidelines and patient versions (see consultations)
  • inviting us to events where we could promote our work;
  • helping to distribute our information to relevant groups; and
  • helping us to collect patient views via surveys and focus groups.

If you would like to become a member of the SIGN patient network or would simply like to receive our newsletter, please complete the on-line joining form, if you have any problems with the form please contact
