Access Permissions

With the appropriate access permissions in place, all research personal involved in a study can be provided access to NBT participants and staff data.

All contracts for staff employed by NBT or who hold an Honorary Contract with NBT will be checked to ensure pre-engagement checks and training are commensurate with the role of the researcher, the type of research and the duty of care. 

Additional pre-engagement checks may still be needed for researchers who do not need an Honorary Research Contract. Non-NBT staff will need appropriate access permissions in order to conduct research involving NBT participants, staff or data. In order to gain access to North Bristol NHS Trust, you will need to provide either:

  • A current Research Passport
  • A copy of a current Honorary Contract with another NHS Trust (covering intended study participant type)

The NBT R&I Office will then determine what level of access will be granted and if any further checks are required.
