Policy Research Programme

The Policy Research Programme (PRP) is a national programme of research dedicated to providing an effective evidence base for policy-making in the Department of Health. It provides information to the Secretary of State for Health and his Ministers directly and through policy directorates in the Department and covers all aspects of the Department’s policy-making activity. It works alongside other national research programmes in the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) whose work is primarily of relevance to the NHS.
