NIHR Research Design Service (RDS)

The West Midlands RDS is part of the infrastructure of the NIHR and has been established to provide help to anyone working in the region who has a ‘good idea’ and wants to turn it into a research proposal for submission to peer-reviewed funding programmes in applied health and social care.

The Birmingham Hub provides support to all health and social care staff working in NHS Trusts and other organisations within Birmingham and the Black Country (Dudley, Sandwell, Walsall and Wolverhampton).
