The NIHR Research Design Service North East and North Cumbria (RDS NENC) is one of ten regional services that make up the national NIHR Research Design Service; we aim to increase the number and quality of applications for applied health and social care research that benefits patients and the public.

The North East team includes experienced researchers with expertise in all aspects of applied health and social care research methods, including qualitative and quantitative design, statistics, health economics, evidence synthesis, clinical trials, public involvement, NHS acute care, primary care, public health and social care research.

RDS NENC provides research design and methodological advice to health and social care researchers who are developing applications for national peer-reviewed funding; we also support successful applicants, should there be any difficulties following funding. Advice is provided free of charge.

Face-to-face advice is supported by telephone and email, skype and video conferencing.  As part of a national service, we adhere to the RDS Charter.

RDS NENC is a regional service, working with a number of partners to provide high quality advice; please complete our online ‘Request an appointment‘ form and we will contact you to arrange a face-to-face meeting. Alternatively, please email: rds.nenc@nihr.ac.uk  or phone (0191) 208 7000.
