Our research

Our research spans the development, evaluation and implementation of high quality care interventions and innovative health services.

We aim to develop health services and interventions to ensure that patients are able to manage their long term conditions and receive the support they need from the right health care workers.

Over 19,000 nurses and 2,000 pharmacists now independently prescribe medicines directly to patients across the most comprehensive range of medicines in the world.

Nurse and pharmacist perscribers now write four million perscriptions per year in England. Our research has been instrumental in evaluating and shaping policy in this area.
