NIHR – News and Research

First update on implementation of the Restart Framework – On 21 May 2020, the NIHR published a Framework for the restarting of research paused due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. This was intended to provide a structure to guide the restarting of a full range of NIHR research, while maintaining local decision-making and flexibility. In the first monthly update, we have seen good progress in terms of assessments taking place and paused research being restarted in parallel with the restoration of routine clinical services.
