Health and Social Care Delivery Research (HSDR)

Sheffield Evidence Synthesis Centre

Delivering effective services

The NIHR Health and Social Care Delivery Research (HSDR) 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 Professor Andrew Booth and Professor Liddy Goyder and draws on the pool of skilled staff available within the Sheffield Centre for Health and Related Research (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 HSDR programme website and in peer-reviewed journals.
