Research with NHS

When acting as ‘Sponsor’ of research involving the NHS, the University expects researchers to consider the existing SOPs of the appropriate NHS Board and where there are SOPs relating to the planned research, to adopt (or, in consultation with the University and NHS R&D office, adapt) the SOPs of the ‘host’ Board.
