From writing your initial proposal to statistical requests and patient & public involvement, here you will find all the documents, forms and standard operating procedures you will need to develop and set up your research idea at North Bristol NHS Trust.
Our Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) should be used by Chief and Principal Investigators, Research Nurses and all other research personnel. They provide detailed guidance on all aspects of research study management from design through to completion.
If you are an NBT staff member, the current research SOPs should first be accessed via our Managed Learning Environment (MLE) in accordance with the Research Staff Training SOP. This will provide you with an electronic training record to evidence that you have read each SOP.
It is the responsibility of all staff who carry out research to check the website regularly to see if SOPs have been added or amended.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns about these documents, please get in touch with us via firstname.lastname@example.org.
