Abstract

Following some time in research, I put down my pipettes to join Blood Cancer UK as a Policy Officer. Blood Cancer UK is a medium-sized charity that funds research and provides information, support, and advocacy to those affected by its namesake. The charity aims to put people affected by blood cancer at the centre of its work. This is easy (and increasingly popular) to say, but harder to do. Recognising that our policy work often lacked patient insight, I established a ‘Policy Panel’ (see Box 1). New to the acronym-dense policy world, below are some of the lessons I learned setting up and managing the Panel, and advice1 for those considering a similar group.
