Stuart Dodzo


Stuart’s patient involvement journey began with an interstitial cystitis diagnosis at 17 (7 years ago) which provided first-hand experience of accessing physical and mental health services as a young person from a BAME background. This fuelled his interest in young people’s involvement in service co-design to help shape services for young people (16-25), long term health condition patients and the BAME community (hard to reach or easy to ignore’ groups)

Stuart is currently studying a MSc in Human Factors and Patient safety, after completing a BSc (Hons) Health and Social care and Diploma in Higher Education in Healthcare: Systems, Policy and Research

Stuart’s public involvement experience includes panel member of CQC Closed Cultures Expert Advisory Group, University College London COVID19 trials Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) group, Public Advisory Group for the Evidence Synthesis Centre (University of Sheffield and National Institute of Health Research), Young Person Advisory Group for Adolescent Mental Health and Development in the Digital World, Mental Health Foundation Youth Leaders (16-25) and Newcastle Community Asset Trust (NCAT) Board Member for Community Engagement and Young People
