Anyone who would like to conduct a study within Surrey and Borders should read and comply with our Research and Development (R&D) policies and procedures:
Researchers are responsible for submitting the correct and complete documentation to our R&D Office in a timely manner. We suggest that prospective researchers submit in parallel to their IRAS application.
Student researchers should approach their university for help with ensuring that they understand the SABP research governance policy and procedure and have all the required documentation in hand.
We require the following documentation:
All external researchers who seek access to the Trust will need to obtain an honorary research contact (by submitting a research passport where appropriate), and will be issued with a SABP letter of access before entering Trust premises. Researchers who have a contractual relationship with an NHS body should submit the relevant documentation and request an NHS-to-NHS letter of access. Applications can be accessed on: http://www.ukcrc.org/regulationgovernance/researchpassport/
All of the documentation listed above should be sent to:
The R&D Office
Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
Abraham Cowley Unit
