NHS Permissions

Researchers planning to conduct research in the NHS in Scotland or Wales (or Health and Social Care (HSC) in Northern Ireland) need to obtain NHS or HSC management permission for each NHS/HSC research site.

Researchers wishing to conduct research in the NHS in England will need to seek permission through HRA Approval.

An application for NHS permissions cannot be made without Sponsorship having already been declared and authorised on the IRAS form. If you require a Noclor partner to act as sponsor then please request sponsorship prior to requesting NHS permissions.

If you need further assistance as to what permissions you need please contact Noclor.

The HRA website provides details on the current processes for gaining NHS permissions, non-NHS site and Participant Identification Centres (PICs) approvals and how to add new sites.
