The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) Policy Research Programme (PRP) invites applications for a single research project to support policy makers in the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) to shape policy on healthy weight in relation to weight management services. This research call aims to commission a project to 1) understand the expectations, experiences, and needs of people who regain weight after completing tier 2 weight management services and 2) understand how current services address weight regain.
This is a significant opportunity to contribute to building an evidence base on a high profile and important policy area of significant interest to the Government.

For more information, please consult the Research Specification for this call (linked on the left hand side).

The submission deadline for applications is 1pm on 14 February 2023.
