NOHF is a registered charity and was originally funded by Lord Nuffield in 1937.

The objectives of the charity are for:

“the raising of the standard of the Hospital or Hospitals concerned in order to assist the development and carrying on of the Oxford University Medical School”.  

Applicants should note that research projects are not normally funded (other than through Oxfordshire Health Services Research Committee - OHSRC).

The annual funds available are approximately £450,000 and bids are considered and grants awarded by the Trustees in May/June of each year. Recently grants have been awarded in the £10,000 to £40,000 range. The Trustees do not allocate grants for less than £5,000.
