  • people who are in charge of commissioning healthcare services
  • people experiencing healthcare issues and people that are hoping to use NHS services

Anyone can register as a reviewer!

  • Those with professional expertise in healthcare
  • Those who might have lived experience of healthcare, or a particular interest in it
  • To become a reviewer you do not need to have a background in healthcare or research.

More information:

As a reviewer, you read the abstract of a published paper in a research area of your interest, for example, mental health, cancer or social care. Once you have read the abstract NIHR will ask you a few questions to determine your view on the paper’s findings. This could take between 20 and 30 minutes. Reviewing tasks are not compulsory, you can always decline an invitation to review.

If you are registering as a public reviewer, there is a small honorarium payment of £12.50 for each review you complete.
