Get involved as an academic or NHS management professional
We seek the input of experts into the HS&DR Programme across a variety of fields and through a variety of channels.
If you are aware of a need for research in a particular area to benefit the NHS. Please email us to make your suggestion.
To assure the quality of HS&DR research, we rely on the help of experts to review:
- research and commissioning briefs
- research proposals
- final reports of research findings
Our community of reviewers play a vital part in maintaining and improving the quality of the HS&DR Programme projects and outputs. They are sought from a variety of fields, including academics, clinicians and those who work in and use NHS services. If you are interested in participating in this way, or would like more detail, please visit our vacancies page.
Panel and Board members
Panel members assess topic suggestions and commissioning briefs for future calls, or first stage research applications arising from calls. Commissioning Board members assess applications for funding to the HS&DR Programme.
Vacancies arise from time to time on our panel or boards. We advertise all such vacancies on our website, and usually on other relevant sites. We recruit members through an open appointment process involving an application and interview.
Current opportunities are advertised on our vacancies page.
The HS&DR Programme commissions research in two different ways: by advertising standard calls for research proposals that address specific topics as agreed by our panels, and by funding research proposed directly by researchers.
Details of funding opportunities, including deadlines for researcher-led applications will be available from mid-January 2012.
If you would like us to alert you by email when future calls go out, please email us.
