The programme supports applications which are regionally derived and applications which have emerged from interaction with patients and the public, which relate to patient and service user experience, and which have been drawn up in association with a relevant group of service users.

All researchers in the NHS in England can apply. Note that for joint NHS/university applications, funding will be awarded to the NHS partner.
