Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR)

Sheffield Evidence Synthesis Centre

Delivering effective services


The NIHR Health Services and Delivery Research (HS&DR) programme has recommissioned us as one of two national evidence synthesis centres to provide timely and contextualised access to the best research evidence on topics of key importance to the NHS.

The centre is directed by Dr Andrew Booth and Professor Liddy Goyder and draws on the pool of skilled staff available within ScHARR as well as topic-specific expert advisors.

We use a range of rapid systematic review methods to identify, evaluate and summarise the available research and highlight the implications for NHS decision-makers and priorities for further research.

We will disseminate our findings in a variety of formats so that they are accessible to NHS managers and clinicians and interested members of the public. Project protocols and reports are published on the Projects page, on the HS&DR programme website and in peer-reviewed journals.
