The NIHR Birmingham Biomedical Research Centre PI/PE activities are led by Dr James Ferguson, a liver transplant physician based at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham and an honorary senior lecturer at the University of Birmingham. His clinical interests are long-term outcomes after transplantation, Primary sclerosing cholangitis and the care of young people with liver disease. He has published extensively and is involved in a number of research collaborations. He leads the National liver accreditation scheme IQILS aimed at improving the care for patients with liver disease. He has led on the establishment of an award-winning patient portal myhealth@QEHB at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham.

The groups include Birmingham Rheumatology Research Patient Partnership (R2P2), The Birmingham 1000 Elders Group, and The Liver GI PPI Reference Group. They are involved in all aspects of our research programme and have led on projects identifying barriers to accessing research and assessing whether patient information sheets inform participants involved in research. To create a step change in our PI/PE activity we will build on this successful platform through a number of key measures:
