Research Design Service (RDS) East Midlands (EM) provides support to those preparing research proposals for submission to peer-reviewed funding competitions for applied health or social care research - leaflet. RDS EM is part of a network of regional support services funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR). Advice and guidance is provided free of charge through consultation with experts and use of online resources. Please see our charter for details of the advice we can provide. Upon receipt of your request, we will allocate an adviser to liaise with your team.
Despite the ongoing situation with Coronavirus (COVID-19) RDS East Midlands will continue to support people developing applications for health and social care research. We will, however, be reducing the need for researchers and our staff to attend face-to-face meetings through greater use of email, telephone and videoconferencing.
