Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB)

Research for Patient Benefit (RfPB) is a national, response-mode programme established in 2006 to generate high quality research for the benefit of users of the NHS in England.

It funds regionally-derived applied research projects in health services and social care. Its main purpose is to realise, through evidence, the huge potential for improving, expanding and strengthening the way that healthcare is delivered for patients, the public and the NHS.

RfPB is coordinated at a national level and in January 2010, Professor David Armstrong succeeded Professor Celia Davies as Programme Director.
