NIHR RESEARCH SUPPORT SERVICE (RSS) replaces NIHR Research Design Service 


On 1 October 2023 the ten NIHR Research Design Services (RDS) were replaced by a centralised NIHR Research Support Service (RSS).

The new service offers national support to all researchers working across the remit of the NIHR.  

NIHR Research Design Service SE closed to new clients on 30 September 2023.

Between 1 October and 31 March 2024, we will continue to support our existing clients, but regret we are unable to accept new requests for RDS support, so please contact NIHR Research Support Service
