R&D management approval is required from NHS organisations hosting research that involves NHS patients, their data, their tissue or NHS resources. It is required to ensure liability is covered by the Clinical Negligence and Other Risks Indemnity Scheme (CNORIS). We ensure all necessary approvals and contracts are in place and that NHS Grampian has the resources required to carry out the project.
We have a commercial and a non-commercial team that deal with all R&D approvals. Further details are available in each team's specific page.
Audit and service evaluations fall out with the remit of NHS R&D. You should contact the Quality Improvement and Assurance team (email@example.com) for such studies.
