National Institute of Health Research

Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Programme

The HS&DR Programme aims to produce rigorous and relevant evidence to improve the quality, accessibility and organisation of health services.

We support many types of research, including primary research and evidence synthesis.

We are particularly keen to support ambitious evaluative research to improve health services. For more information on our programme remit, please visit the remit page. Our research serves a variety of key stakeholders including: NHS managers, Clinical Research Networks (CRNs), clinicians and researchers, service users and carers, and the public.

All of our funded projects are eligible for publication in the new NIHR Journals Library. This open access resource is freely available online, and provides a full and permanent record of NIHR-funded research.
