There will be two cash prizes of £400 and £100 for the most research aware and the most active Patient Participation Groups.
Simon Denegri, the NIHR’s national director for public participation and engagement, said: “I’m delighted to launch this new award to recognise the achievements that patient groups are making in primary care across the country.
