Research and development: a new direction for NEAS

The Department of Health has recently introduced a new national strategic direction for research and development (R&D) across the National Health Service (NHS). One of the major developments is the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) which provides a framework to position, manage and maintain world-class research, staff and infrastructure in the NHS.

This article provides an overview of the national development and highlights some of the major consequential developments for the North East Ambulance Service NHS Trust (NEAS).
