Young Adult Patient and Public Involvement Group (YAPPI) is based at Southampton General Hospital and meets roughly every 1-2 months to discuss various health research topics and to work on specific projects.
Meetings tend to fall on weeknight evenings and the date is selected based on group member availability.
YAPPI is a collaboration between the NIHR Research Design Service South Central and University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust.
We are a group for young adults aged 16-24. Some of our members are patients while some have a general interest in health and social care research. Members enjoy the insights into research and the additional opportunities that the group can offer its members.
