Health and Care Research Wales provides an infrastructure to support and increase capacity in research and development, runs a range of responsive funding schemes and provides funding to NHS Wales to support the development and delivery of research for the benefit of patients and the public. Our innovative infrastructure and portfolio of funded programmes consolidates, updates and builds on what has been created and delivered to date, placing Wales at the international forefront of health and social care research.
Our infrastructure allows a sharper focus on Wales’ current and emerging areas of excellence and ensures an integrated, interdisciplinary, interagency, all-Wales approach, from research development to changes in practice based on research evidence. The people of Wales are central to the infrastructure and the programmes which lead to major gains in health and wellbeing, effectiveness of services and the generation of national wealth.
