Supporting Health and Social Care Research

The NIHR survey ‘Improving your experience of establishing and delivering research in the NHS’ was completed during the spring of 2017.

It was part of a ‘listening’ exercise of NIHR funded frontline staff, which demonstrated that there was a need to provide more resources and best practice examples to inspire and encourage NIHR staff to promote research and its achievements with colleagues less closely linked to research.

As a result, a range of resources and best practice success stories have been pulled together to make promoting research and its benefits to patient care more accessible to everyone.


Our toolkit provides you with a range of resources and materials to help you engage your colleagues in health research.

Success stories

Our success stories are case studies of initiatives which have successfully engaged people in research.
