The vision of the Research and Development Strategy is to:

  • Support development of high quality commissioning underpinned by research and innovation,
  • Support NHS England in becoming an excellent organisation by encouraging a culture that values and promotes research and innovation
  • Create an evidence based decision making culture
  • Ensure research undertaken or commissioned by NHS England is patient centred
  • Offer every patient the opportunity to take part in research (where practical)
  • Contribute to economic growth

The strategy’s aim is to:

  • promote the use of research and the use of evidence obtained from high quality research,
  • support the NHS outcomes framework objectives by building the evidence base,
  • identify best practice  to commission research that delivers benefits for patients and their families,
  • support the development of evidenced based innovative practice.

There are six objectives to be delivered by 2018; these outline how NHS England will deliver to the vision, the aim and its priorities. Each objective has an associated outcome and impact highlighted.
