The Spending Review 2021 provides £5 billion for health-related research and development, with an increase of £605 million by 2024/25. This is shared between the National Institute for Health and Research (NIHR), Genomics England and the Office for Life Sciences. Planning for this funding is ongoing and budgets will be adjusted over the Spending Review period to meet priorities as they arise. However, the current allocation provides an increase in the NIHR’s budget of more than 40% by 2024/25.
