Suggest a research topic

Your ideas could help us to improve the health of the nation through research. Whether you are a patient, carer, service user or any other member of the public, we want you to let us know what ideas you would like us to consider for research.

  • Suggest a topic to the Horizon Scanning Research & Intelligence Centre (HSRIC) about a new health technology that is not yet available to patients. Health Technology is an internationally recognised term that covers any method used by those working in health services to promote health, prevent and treat disease and improve rehabilitation and long-term care. “Technologies” in this context are not confined to new drugs or pieces of sophisticated equipment. The HSRIC provides the latest news on emerging technologies in healthcare, to key policy and decision makers and research funders within the English National Health Service (NHS) about emerging health technologies that may have a significant impact on patients or the provision of health services in the near future.
