This session will guide you through the steps to obtaining permission to
carry out your research project within the NHS. We will work through an
ethics application, considering the steps required, including
sponsorship review and approval, demonstrating where guidance and advice
can be found and highlighting tips and hints based on our experience. We
will talk through NHS governance processes their purpose, including HRA
approval and forms and how to manage NHS governance where NHS ethical
review is not required. We will provide an overview of the research
passport system, why it was introduced and who needs to access it. We
will have time available for questions and comments so bring your
burning issue or experience you wish to share.
