The Government will provide this funding through the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) and UK Research and Innovation (UKRI). The NIHR and UKRI rely on researchers submitting high-quality applications to access funding, therefore specific details of allocations are not currently available. All applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the importance to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality.
