Ten years of impact
Throughout 10 years of NIHR research, our studies have helped the NHS to answer key health care questions. Here are some examples.
Where is it best to give birth?
For expectant parents, the decision of where they choose to give birth can be a difficult one. Researchers funded by the NIHR compared the safety of births planned to take place in four different settings.
Can football clubs help fans to lose weight?
Although men are more likely to be overweight or obese than women, they are less likely to join weight-loss programmes. The NIHR evaluated an intervention carried out in partnership with Scottish Premier League football clubs - Football Fans in Training.
How do you keep Ebola patients hydrated?
