About PEBL

PEBL Feedback CIC is a Social Enterprise specialising in community engagement with health services and the sharing of experiences. The company is run by three Trustees with a wide range of experience in health research and the organisation of medical and social care. We work with a range of  face-to-face and web-based methods to facilitate equal partnerships between professionals and service users. PEBL has particular experience and expertise in the development of anonymous web and app based story telling and discussion, providing a community space for people to exchange views and experiences in their own-words, in their own time.

PEBL Feedback Community Interest Company (CIC). A CIC is a Company which does not make private profit for shareholders or owners – it runs to serve the community and surpluses go into further development. PEBL was originally a research project funded by the National Institute for Health Research. Now, PEBL Feedback CIC is managed by a Board of Trustees:-

Charlie Davison (Charlie is a Medical Anthropologist, he was Principal Investigator on the original PEBL research project)

Caroline Gunnell (Co-investigator on the original PEBL research project, Caroline is from a nursing background and has extensive experience as Research Manager in the NHS)

Ewen Speed (Co-investigator on the original PEBL research project, Ewen is a Senior Lecturer in Medical Sociology at the University of Essex)

A current example of PEBL’s work is our feedback site for the discussion of HIV self-testing.

A previous project saw PEBL working with Macmillan Cancer Care on patient/professional experiences.
