The Health Research Authority (HRA) announced on 31st March that funding has been made available to implement its HRA Approval programme. HRA Approval will "provide a single approval for research in the NHS that will incorporate assessments by NHS staff employed by the HRA alongside the independent Research Ethics Committee opinion. This will allow decisions at local sites about participation to be made on local capacity and capability alone."
More details can be found on the HRA website, and the Research Office looks forward to working with the HRA on this development.
