PSP Steering Group


Our Priority Setting Partnership steering group is made up of clinicians, researchers and women and their partners with lived experience of Pregnancy Hypertension. We hope to achieve a broad spectrum of opinions and experiences from this diverse group of healthcare professionals and lay members so that the 'Top Ten' research priorities we end up with really do represent the views of the people most affected by Pregnancy Hypertension.
