Mental health, dementia and antimicrobial resistance will feature among research supported by a record £816 million investment in the NHS through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), the Health Secretary announced today (14 September).

Leading clinicians in the NHS, and researchers at top universities, will benefit from new world class facilities and support services from the five-year NIHR Biomedical Research Centre funding scheme – the largest ever investment into new health research.

Chief Scientific Advisor Professor Chris Whitty said:

“The future of NHS care depends on the science we do now. This new funding will enable clinical researchers to keep pushing for medical breakthroughs. The NIHR Biomedical Research Centres announced today offer huge potential benefits for patients across the country.”
