About us

The Health Services Research Network (HSRN) aims to connect all universities, commercial and professional organisations, charities and NHS bodies with an interest in HSR. It defines health services research as all research that underpins improvements in the way health services are financed, organised, planned and delivered, and includes health technology assessments and health policy research. The HSRN is supported by the National Institute of Health Research, the Health Foundation and the Nuffield Trust.

The HSRN aims to:

influence policymakers and managers to support better use of research and to ensure that research priorities reflect the needs of the public, policymakers and those responsible for the management of the system

campaign for secure funding for HSR and measures to improve HSR careers

promote interchange between health services research, clinical work and management

provide a collective voice for researchers in the wider policy debate

promote issues of common interest to funders, universities and Government.

It does this by:

representing the HSR community to Government, funding organisations, the management community and other professional bodies by initiating and leading discussion and responding to policy issues

organising events to promote HSR and provide opportunities for dialogue between researchers and with managers

building international links with equivalent bodies.
