Newcastle Hospitals Charity (Charity Registration Number 1057213) is the official charity of Newcastle Hospitals. The charity mission is to be an enabler to improving the health and wellbeing of the patients, people and wider communities of Newcastle Hospitals, supporting compassionate and innovative healthcare, education and research; locally and nationally.
Working in close partnership with Newcastle Hospitals, Newcastle Hospitals Charity (NHC) dedicates funding to health related clinical research that is relevant to patients and their families or carers. Applications for research grants are assessed annually by the Joint Research Executive Scientific Committee (JRESC), representing the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (NuTH) and Newcastle University.
The closing date for this year’s round is Monday 13 September 2021 at 17:00.
The Committee strongly favours applications that seek to collect data to “pump-prime” subsequent grant or fellowship applications to national or international funding bodies, and/or that enhance and support the careers of junior researchers from diverse medical, scientific and allied health professional backgrounds.
Often research related donations to the Charity have conditions relating to which specific disease area can be funded.
