Researcher Guidance for Public Health ETC
Date: 13 June 2022
Managing Excess Treatment Costs (ETC) for Research into Public Health and Social Care Interventions Commissioned by Non-NHS Organisations in England only.
The Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) and NIHR are piloting interim arrangements to support non-NHS excess treatment costs for research into public health and social care (non-NHS intervention costs). This replaces the previous arrangements for supporting public health intervention costs managed by Public Health England (PHE).
Whilst it is expected that as a matter of principle the organisation responsible for commissioning the service being researched should pay intervention costs or provide equivalent resources, where this has not been possible public health and social care research studies funded by non-commercial funders may be eligible for support from DHSC.
Researchers who are undertaking research in public health and/or social care in England that is funded non-commerically and who are seeking funding for excess treatment costs (ETCs) should contact firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance.
For the purposes of this guidance, non-NHS excess treatment costs are considered as Non-NHS intervention costs; interventions or services that are outside of the remit of the NHS (generally Local Government commissioned) and not covered by existing arrangements for payment by clinical service commissioners.
