The Public Health Research Programme (PHR) is accepting Stage 1 applications to their commissioned workstream for this topic. The Programme is interested in funding evaluations of non-NHS interventions and prefers looking at those that act at a population, rather than individual, level. The Programme is particularly interested in the role of local government and the voluntary sector in the context of compound pressures. Those populations that are most vulnerable to compound pressures are of interest and should be defined carefully, with involvement of those communities in the development and undertaking of any research encouraged.
In order to apply you will need to carefully review the:
- Commissioning brief
- Compound pressures supporting information
- Stage 1 guidance notes
- PHR supporting information
Our calls are being supported by Public Health Research Applications and Design Advice (PHRADA), which is provided by the NIHR Research Design Service (RDS) across England. If you would like to request support for this call, please contact PHRADA by email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants from England who have not been funded by the PHR Programme before are required to provide proof that contact has been made with the PHRADA service.
All primary research projects are expected to establish a programme appointed Study Steering Committee and it is important that you read the Research Governance Guidance before completing your application. Costs incurred by this committee should be included in the budget as appropriate.
