Research Design Service South East

The National Institute for Health and Care Research (NIHR) funds the Research Design Service to provide research design and methodological support to health and social care researchers across England to develop grant applications to the NIHR and other national peer-reviewed funding programmes. Advice is confidential and free of charge.

The RDS offers an accessible, confidential service to new and experienced research teams, providing tailored support and guidance from initial idea through to final application.

Following  COVID19, RDS SE  continues to support all those developing health and social care research applications. We continue to work to a hybrid model, reducing the need for face-to-face meetings and greater use of email, telephone and videoconferencing.
