A key aim for the Welsh Government's Research & Development Division is to maximise the contribution the NHS makes to the research infrastructure in Wales.
Performance Management and Operational Guidance
The Welsh Government's Research & Development Division's ‘Delivery Framework for the Performance Management of NHS R&D 2016/17’ sets out how Welsh Government will performance manage NHS organisations in Wales in relation to R&D.

The Welsh Government set a national objective to ensure the effective provision of a NHS research infrastructure to develop research capacity through the appropriate use of R&D allocations as well as investment of other R&D income that the NHS organisation generates. The key indicator set to achieve this national objective is for NHS organisations to have a current ‘in use’ finance policy.
Health and Care Research Wales has produced a NHS R&D Finance Policy Template which covers the details and mechanisms necessary for the management, accountability and distribution of NHS research funding and income.
