The PPI element of this role will involve recruiting a diverse group of patient representatives from different backgrounds (identified by NHS staff) and exploring their views and feedback on research topics, their experience of the bariatric surgery, gaps in care, and recommendations. The researcher will conduct interviews and engage with PPI representatives to review and iterate documents where needed. The goal is to also set up a PPI panel for ongoing input where needed, and the researcher will produce a brief report.

The other component of this role may involve liaising with NHS collaborators and providing research set-up support linked to implementation of the research database. The researcher may be required to host a stakeholder meeting and will assist with ongoing needs of the project, where relevant. Other tasks may arise for the researcher to feed into on different projects.
