Oxford Blood Group is a patient involvement group for anyone with a haematology (blood) condition. Our members are people who have been treated at the Oxford hospitals and throughout the Thames Valley Network.
Our aim is:
- to involve people in the research that goes on in Oxford
- to inform people of training opportunities, events and activities to take part in
- to engage people who use our services in quality improvement and service development.
Group members might, for example, be asked to review patient information that is given to people taking part in clinical trials. They will be notified about opportunities to take part in trial management or research priority setting. They might be invited to suggest quality improvement initiatives, or to comment on their experience of an aspect of our service. There are opportunities here to get involved in our research as a patient or a member of the public.

The Oxford Hospitals Charity supports the different departments and wards of Oxford University Hospitals, helping to provide the best medical equipment, research and facilities for our patients and staff.
We thank the Oxford Biomedical Research Centre for its support in enabling the establishment of the Oxford Centre for Haematology.
