It is not usual practice to ring-fence funds for particular topics or conditions. Applications are subject to peer review and judged in open competition, with awards being made on the basis of the importance of the topic to patients and health and care services, value for money and scientific quality. In all disease areas, the amount of NIHR funding depends on the volume and quality of scientific activity.</p><p> </p><p>The NIHR continues to fund and support a range of research into congenital heart defects in babies, including the following projects:</p><p>- MRI-augmented guidance for X-ray fluoroscopic paediatric cardiovascular interventions (£415,000);</p><p>- Mixed Reality Imaging of Congenital Heart Disease to Improve Surgical Decision-Making (£453,000); and</p><p>- Infant deaths in the United Kingdom community following successful cardiac surgery - building the evidence base for optimal surveillance (£22.800).</p><p>Information on individual projects funded by the NIHR can be found at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><strong><a href="https://www.journalslibrary.nihr.ac.uk/programmes/" target="_blank">https://www.journalslibrary.nihr.ac.uk/programmes/</a></strong></p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the negative impact of isolation and loneliness on the quality of life for elderly and other vulnerable people. It is not possible, however, to demonstrate a causal link between becoming socially isolated or lonely and developing mental health problems.</p><p> </p><p>Whilst Improving Access to Psychological Therapies (IAPT) services cannot ‘treat’ loneliness, those who experience mental health conditions may also be lonely and vice versa. IAPT services can signpost or refer people onto other services that seek to address loneliness where these are available locally.</p><p> </p><p>Feelings of social isolation and loneliness are not exclusive to the elderly but that group can be particularly affected. The Green Paper on the care of older people which will be published in the autumn, will set out a number of proposals to help older people live healthier, longer, more independent lives.</p> more like this
