Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR)

Home Funding Funding opportunities Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR)

The 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 audiences for this research are the public, service users, clinicians and managers.

The programme supports a range of types of research, including evidence synthesis and primary research. This includes large-scale studies of national importance that: address an issue of major strategic importance to the NHS, are likely to lead to changes in practice that will have a significant impact on a large number of patients across the UK, aim to fill a clear 'evidence gap', or are likely to generate new knowledge of direct relevance to the NHS.

The HS&DR Programme has two workstreams: researcher-led and commissioned. The researcher-led workstream accepts applications from researchers on any question that is within the programme remit. The commissioned workstream issues calls on specific topics that have been identified as high priority for the NHS.
