An Open Invitation - Advice relating to NIHR Research in Essex and Hertfordshire
If you would like advice relating to your research study, such as R&D application, recruitment to time and target, research site initiation, requirement for NHS Letters of Access, research skills training availability etc, then you can contact your local EH CLRN Office or ring into our bi-weekly study delivery meetings.
NHS Trusts' departments and services could also use this teleconference as an opportunity to get advice about studies they are approached about or to find out how CLRN can assist them in meeting regulatory compliance and compiling evidence relating to research for Quality Accounts.
This is also an opportunity for the NIHR Topic Networks and PCRN staff to keep in touch with the CLRN about general and arising matters relating to studies that are hosted by the local Trusts.
The telephone conferences are held 12:00-12:30 and

NIHR Coordinated System for gaining NHS Permission (NIHR CSP)
The ability to set up studies quickly is central to making the NHS an internationally competitive environment for clinical research, enabling studies to reach their recruitment targets as swiftly and efficiently as possible. A key component of the NHS R&D strategy is the NIHR Coordinated System for gaining NHS Permission, or NIHR CSP. This is a coordinated and streamlined process by which NHS organisations provide permission (R&D approval) for new research that is available to studies eligible for the NIHR Portfolio. All non-commercial studies to be included in the NIHR Portfolio must use NIHR CSP as the route to seek NHS permission .
NIHR CSP is coordinated by the CLRNs in partnership with the NIHR Clinical Research Network Coordinating Centre. The NIHR CSP system runs in parallel to the Ethics application and any other relevant regulatory applications, with a Lead CLRN carrying out the study-wide review and participating CLRNs carrying out the reviews applicable to local sites. All NHS organisations in England are accepting applications through the system. Arrangements are in place to coordinate studies taking place across the UK.
