Health Services and Delivery Research Programme

The NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Programme funds research to produce evidence on the quality, accessibility and organisation of health services. This includes evaluations of how the NHS might improve delivery of services. The audience for this research is the public, service users, clinicians and managers.

  • 16/116 – Researcher-led, standard outline
  • 16/115 – Researcher-led, evidence synthesis full

For applications for evidence synthesis research, the HS&DR researcher-led workstream now operates a one-stage straight to full application process

For details see the NIHR website.

Research for the Patient Benefit Programme

The NIHR Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) programme invites research proposals which are related to the day-to-day practice of health service staff and is concerned with having an impact on the health or well-being of patients and users of the NHS. As a responsive rather than a commissioning programme, RfPB does not seek to name specific topic areas and welcomes applications on a wide range of issues and aims to fund high quality research that will be directed at achieving benefit for users of the NHS in England.
