Dr. Alison Allam

I have experience of being a patient representative in several different organisations, including NICE in the role of standing member for their quality standards advisory and NIHR both as a member of PIVIN and more recently as a member of the Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Programme. I am also involved with Cancer Research UK and specifically with precision medicine and how recent developments in this emerging area of research are communicated to the wider public. I have joined the NIHR DEC London as a lay advisory panel member as I was particularly interested in how we can promote patient involvement at such an early stage of diagnostics development and the patient pathway.
