Research governance and integrity

Once the Research Governance and Integrity Team (RGIT) receives a valid application for Trust approval (local site approval), review timelines will commence. The RGIT will review the study documentation against the ethics and regulatory approvals, taking into account any issues or feedback from the Clinical Division or Key Support Services involved in your project.

Review and approval should occur within 30 days of receipt of a valid research application.
