There are various ways to get involved with the VBI Programme:
General Practices will be recruited for workstream 3 to pilot our very brief interventions, as well as for workstream 4 to test the most promising intervention that arises from the pilot and development work. If your General Practice is interested in finding out more about the VBI Programme and/or getting involved, please see our General Practices involvement page for further details and contact numbers.
Participants will be recruited via the NHS Health Checks for 40-74 year olds. If you are interested in becoming a participant, ask your practice if they are involved in the VBI Programme. (At present, only a limited number of practices are taking part, however this number will increase with the start of workstream 4.)
The VBI Programme seeks expertise from a panel of lay advisors; members of the general public who could receive a very brief intervention. The panel ensures the programme proceeds with an understanding of the needs of the general public. If you are interested in becoming a lay advisor, please see our Lay advisor involvement page for further details and contact numbers.
