UK Secretary of State for Health Andrew Lansley has announced £775m in funding over five years for translational research to deliver benefits to NHS patients.

The funding is aimed at providing new world-class treatments to NHS patients to improve survival rates and quality of life.

The funding will be made available to NHS and university partnerships through the National Institute for Health Research.

Funding applications are being encouraged to focus on improving treatment for patients with high-priority diseases such as dementia, cancer and heart disease.

The funding forms part of the £4bn that the UK Government is planning to invest in research and development up to March 2015.

Lansley said that in order to give NHS patients the best possible treatment, researchers should be given the tools needed to develop new world-class treatments and innovations.

“This investment is vital to achieving our goal of making the NHS a world-leading healthcare system,” Lansley added.
