NIHR HS&DR Programme: Commissioned call into Adult Community Health and Social Care services

  Thursday, 08 Apr 2021 | Funding Deadline

The Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) Programme aims to produce rigorous and relevant evidence to improve the quality, accessibility and organisation of health and social care services.

The HS&DR Programme are accepting stage 1 applications to the following call via the commissioned workstream:



The focus of this call is on the organisation and delivery of adult community health and social care services, and its role in avoiding planned and unplanned hospital admissions. In the context of this call, community health and social care services are services delivered at an individual level to help people manage their health and care needs in a person’s home. Examples might include, but are not limited to, the provision of palliative care, domiciliary care and acute care following a stay in hospital. Typically, these services are overseen by a care professional but often involve a multidisciplinary team which may involve professions such as community and district nurses, healthcare support workers, allied health professionals (AHPs) and social workers.


Deadline for proposals: 8th April 2021
