Public Involvement opportunity to take part in research.

We would like to bring together as much information as we can about the best ways to manage childhood constipation. This will help us make sure that health professionals and parents know what treatments might work best for a child with constipation. To make sure that our research answers questions which are important to carers/family of all children with constipation and to young people who had childhood constipation, we want to involve people with lived experience in our project.
