star this property answer text <p>Prior to the establishment of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) in April 2006, the main part of the total health research expenditure of the Department of Health was devolved to and managed by National Health Service organisations. The NHS organisations reported on their use of these allocations in annual research and development reports. These reports identify total, aggregated expenditure on national priority areas, including cancer. They do not provide details of research into particular cancer sites. From April 2006 to March 2009, transitional research funding was allocated to these organisations at reducing levels.
