James Lind Alliance


The James Lind Alliance (JLA) is a non profit making organisation. Its main aim is to bring patients, carers and clinicians together in Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs). PSPs aim to identify and prioritise the top 10 uncertainties (research questions about treatments which cannot be answered by existing research) for a wide range of health conditions.

Once the top ten uncertainties have been identified, we will make sure that research funders are aware of them, so that funding can be directed towards the issues that matter most to patients and clinicians.

The JLA works closely together with patients, carers and clinicians to make sure everyone has a voice on an equal basis. The JLA is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) which provides the infrastructure to train and support JLA Advisers. The JLA Adviser for the Hyperhidrosis PSP is Maryrose Tarpey.
