Research and Evidence Services

Every day across the healthcare sector more than a million decisions are made which have a profound impact on people’s lives and which influence the quality and cost of healthcare services. The Government and health organisations have obligations under the Health and Social Care Act 2012 to ensure the use of evidence from research and to make use of the best available evidence in their decision-making.
