Ethics and research governance approval

Health and medical research improves people's health and wellbeing.

  • Apply for ethics approval

    There are guidelines and standards that must be met to ensure research is ethically sound.

  • Apply for research governance approval

    You need to apply for a research governance review, which includes a site-specific assessment (SSA) before your research can start.

  • Research project reporting

    After your research project has been granted ethics approval and governance authorisation, you'll need to report on your project's progress.
