If your research involves NHS staff as participants and NHS resources will be used (including NHS staff time, facilities, etc.) your project will need University research ethics review. Further guidance on this process can be found on the Ethics team's web pages.
The project will also require HRA Approval through the IRAS system.
This will involve your project undergoing a joint review by the University Ethics team and the Research Governance team. Please note that for joint review applications, you will initially need to register your project with the Ethics Team via either the Worktribe ethics checklist or the new online ERM system, depending on the nature of the project (please see the Ethics team's guidance page for full instructions).
Following this, you will need to complete the IRAS form and this will be accepted for both ethics review and HRA submission. After you have received both ethics and governance approval, the project can then be submitted for HRA approval through IRAS.
