National Institute for Health Research Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) programme

The HS&DR programme funds research to improve the quality, effectiveness and accessibility of the NHS. It aims to produce rigorous and relevant evidence on the quality, access and organisation of health services, including costs and outcomes. The HS&DR programme is the result of the merger of two former NIHR programmes, the Health Services Research programme (HSR) and the Service Delivery and Organisation programme (SDO). The aims of both programmes are being carried forward into the HS&DR programme.
