Officials, working with NHS England and NHS Improvement, with input from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and the Association of Medical Research Charities, are drafting guidance on the process by which non-National Health Service organisations that have loaned/redeployed research staff that they employ to the NHS will be able to recover relevant costs. This will apply to research staff funded by research funders including the National Institute for Health Research, UKRI, and charities and will be published shortly.
