NIHR Primary Care Interventions Themed Call

Today (12 February, 2013), around 500 representatives from the primary care research community are attending a workshop in central London to help them find out more about how the NIHR supports primary care research, about the funding opportunities available to them and how to make successful research applications.

On the 28 February 2013, the NIHR will launch a cross-programme call for research which evaluates health care interventions or services delivered in primary care settings. The call closes on the 22 May 2013, with funding decisions expected in March 2014.

This themed call is a key component of the NIHR response to recognising the need for further research-based evidence in primary care through:

  • supporting capacity building across a wide range of primary care disciplines; and
  • increasing the volume of high-quality research into the effectiveness, delivery and organisation of primary care interventions and services.

Professor Dame Sally C. Davies, Chief Medical Officer and Chief Scientific Adviser at the Department of Health, said:

‘It is essential that the NHS ensures that all the methods to promote, treat and prevent disease and the settings in which these are delivered are of the highest quality possible. With most people coming into contact with the NHS through primary care, this call provides professionals working within the Primary Care health community opportunities to develop and conduct high-quality research studies that can really make a difference to front-line health care.’

The programmes participating are:

Efficacy and Mechanism Evaluation (EME)
Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR)
Health Technology Assessment (HTA)
Invention for Innovation (i4i)
Programme Grants for Applied Research (PGfAR)
Public Health Research (PHR)
Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB)
NIHR Fellowships Programme (The 2014 round  for the Fellowships Programme opens in October 2013)

An NIHR webpage provides further information about the call for potential applicants. This includes a specification document which broadly outlines the remit for each participating programme as well as FAQs.

Please note: application forms for the Primary Care Interventions Themed Call will only be available from the opening date – 28 February 2013.
