How we are managed

Our work is directed by the Senior Management Team of the Science, Research and Evidence Directorate at the Department of Health and Social Care.

An Advisory and a Strategy Board advise on the strategic direction for our work.

Our day-to-day operations are overseen by a number of managing centres

The NIHR is widely distributed and covers all health and care therapeutic areas - look up NIHR in your area by postcode or specialty.
