For Researchers

Types of research

There are different types of research, including ones involving medicinal products and medical devices. 

Setting up a research project

Before a research project can begin, the Trust has to ensure that the project is compliant with applicable research legislation, including the DH Research Governance Framework (RGF). 

Managing a research project

Once approved, the Trust has an obligation under the Department of Health’s Research Governance Framework (RGF) to ensure that research projects continue to be conducted in line with regulatory requirements. 

Research training and education

We ensure that staff are well supported, trained and, if appropriate, supervised in their research endeavours. The Trust offers a variety of research training sessions as well as opportunities for research staff to meet and share best practice and research experiences.
