The Non-Commercial team are responsible for reviewing research projects sponsored by  non-commercial organisations, including Universities and the NHS. We are also responsible for providing NHS costs for grant applications and authorising completed SOECATs.

R&D approval

All research projects are submitted via IRAS ( We receive the submission documents electronically and we will request any other documents required.

Projects which require research nurse support need to be discussed with the Senior Research Nurses or the Lead Research Nurse.

Projects which require information about the facilities available to support research should be discussed with the CRFs Manager.
