Join an NIHR committee and shape the future of our research

The National Institute for Health Research is inviting members of the public to join one of their national and regional committees who are responsible for making funding recommendations in health and social care research.

The committees play an important role in helping us deliver our mission to improve the health and wealth of the nation through research. Funded by the Department of Health and Social Care, the NIHR is the nation’s largest funder of health and social care research.

We are looking for people who have a broad interest in health, social care and actions to improve public health and address health inequalities.

You do not need to have a scientific background to help us shape research! We are looking for people who are able to use their own experiences to improve the research we wish to fund.

NIHR is committed to creating a supportive, inclusive and positive community. Membership is open to people from across the United Kingdom and we welcome applications from all sections of the community.

We would be happy to answer any questions about these opportunities and provide guidance and support on the application process, please contact us by email:
