The National Institute for Health Research invites proposals for its researcher-led funding stream under its public health research programme. This supports research that evaluates public health interventions, specifically to provide new knowledge on the benefits, costs, acceptability and wider impacts of non-NHS interventions intended to improve the health of the public and reduce inequalities in health.

Applications should focus on intervention development where an intervention already exists and for which there is an evidence base, but requires adaptation to situations such as a new context, or amalgamation of separate, defined interventions, so that they complement each other. Applications may come from all relevant research areas, but a special attention is given to proposals focusing on complex health and care needs in older people, particularly those addressing frailty, transitions in care, service delivery and models of care, medicines management or polypharmacy; promoting healthy ageing or preventing ill health, or patient-centred decision making.
