The HRCS underpins four important UKCRC analysis reports which together provide a comprehensive overview of non-commercial health research funding in the UK. The analysis reports have been disseminated widely in the UK and had a major impact, providing the basis for high level strategy discussions and informing a number of joint funding initiatives.
The original national analysis featured eleven of UK's largest government and charity health research funders and award data from the financial year 2004/05. The report of this analysis, UK Health Research Analysis (2004/05), was published in 2006.
The original analysis was replicated in a second report, the UK Health Research Analysis 2009/10, and published in 2012. The new report shows the significant changes in the UK health research landscape five years after the original. This report added new features to the report, including an assessment of research infrastructure and an estimation of the total UK Health R&D expenditure.
The HRCS was also used to analyse the funding activities of 29 medium and smaller sized members of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC). This report, From Donation To Innovation, was published in 2007.
The third in the quinquennial series of UK Health Research Analyses, covering the 2014 calendar year, expanded the analysis to include 64 UK charity and public health research funders. The UK Health Research Analysis 2014, was published in August 2015.
