Every year, over 100 National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funded Centres, Facilities, Units, Schools and others provide an annual progress report to the NIHR. These reports are a source of valuable information that allows the NIHR to review performance, enable decision making on future funding requirements, answer Parliamentary Questions, prepare briefings for Ministers, and respond to other requests for information.
There is a patient and public involvement and engagement (PPIE) section in annual reports that asks for a brief summary of progress to date in implementing PPIE strategies.
Over the last three years, NIHR have extracted and compiled the PPIE sections of annual reports and made them publicly available. The main aim in doing this is to support and promote the sharing of knowledge, learning and good practice across the NIHR and beyond.
