This national, response-mode funding scheme has been established in order to provide high quality research that will be of direct benefit to users of the NHS in England. Applications will be considered by one of ten Regional Funding Committees (RFCs) and proposals that relate to health service challenges, regionally or locally, will be particularly
welcome. As a responsive rather than a commissioning programme, RfPB does not seek to name specific topic areas and welcomes applications on a wide range of issues.
