    Do we know if the problems/issues that existed when this group was initially set up have been resolved?

    Obviously the Board members mentioned are reassuring.

    I thought the document felt quite strange and not very encouraging and was detailed in some working practices but didn't give a good overview (hence missing things like how meetings happen). Also I'm not keep on the use of a phone bridge things like skype of zoom are much easier to use.

    Its also not clear if travel is necessary (personally I don't travel but I do a lot via video conference and so its not clear if that is an option).

    Having said that I am thinking of applying.

    Board meetings are held in London (there's one next month), and there was one very early this year in Southampton (at the main hospital). PAG reps have an expenses budget for travel. We are actively encouraged to go, as patient reps, and in fact in January (Southampton) there were FIVE of us there. (not sure how that happened!!!!)

    not sure - the email I found said "the MRC building" - don't know offhand if this is the MRC London Institute of Medical Sciences or the MRC at One Kemble Street.
