Full description:

We are looking for participants from all ethnic and cultural backgrounds who have two or more long-term conditions (e.g. diabetes, heart disease, lung disease, depression/anxiety, arthritis or back pain) that significantly affect their quality of life. We are also looking for family/friends who care for such patients. We would like both to join our Lived Experience Advisory Group and help us design a new rehabilitation programme that meets their needs.

Date from

13th June 2022

Date to

13th September 2022


The PERFORM Lived Experience Advisory Group

The PERFORM Lived Experience Advisory Group will meet with the research team in-person at the University of Birmingham between six and eight times over approximately 18 months.

The PERFORM study aims to develop and test a new exercise-based rehabilitation for people with long-term conditions. We hope that the rehabilitation programme will improve the quality of life of patients living with long-term conditions by improving their physical and mental/emotional well-being.
