Where have we got to?
REG, the first few months: Alison Chisholm
Initial wish
“Set up a new initiative
that will raise the
quality and profile of
real-life (respiratory)
research across the
research, political and
public arenas”
• Set up an independent social enterprise
• Invite the right people
o Core steering group
– Reactive
– Rapid-decision makers
o Wider expert membership
• Contact sponsors
• Begin dialogue and discussion among the members
• Build “web-presence”
• Undertake research – starting with a validation study
• Bring the lead group together to set an action plan
The beginnings of REG
• Work began on the
1st of October 2012
• As of 1st February, the
Respiratory Effectiveness Group
is trading as a social enterprise
organisation
(formally as Respiratory Effectiveness Ltd)
