Patient research partners acted as specialist advisors, and were involved in the planning and conduct of this research and in the development of this manuscript as authors. All participants in the EuroTEAM project were provided with information about the purpose of this evaluation exercise, and both patient partners and researchers contributed to the development of the survey reported here. Completion and return of the survey was voluntary for both EuroTEAM researchers and patient research partners. Formal ethical approval is therefore not needed for research of this kind, in line with National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) INVOLVE policy.
