The department's National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) has recently announced its intention to award a programme grant entitled Cost-efficient service provision in neurorehabilitation: defining needs, costs and outcomes for people with long-term neurological conditions to Professor Lynne Turner-Stokes, North West London Hospitals NHS Trust/King's College London.

The award is subject to contractual negotiation, but we anticipate that it will be for some £2 million and will run for five years starting in July 2008. The research will be governed by a standard departmental research and development contract an example of which is available on the NIHR website at www.nihr-cf.org.uk/site/docdatabase/rfpb/rfpb_docs/RfPB%20-%20NHS%20Trust%20Contract.pdf.
