Research governance

We receive regular requests for access to students, trainees, staff or information for research purposes. On occasion, our local and national teams are invited to be partners in research bids or related activity. To establish some consistency in how we respond to such requests and to provide some coordination of research and evaluation across HEE, we have established a Research Governance Group to review and advise on applications.

More information about the group, including how to submit an application, dates and deadlines for future meetings can be downloaded from the related documents section of this page. Completed applications should be emailed to ri@hee.nhs.uk for consideration by the group.

Guidance about funding for research studies can be found on the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) website.

The NHS Research and Development Forum leads, promotes, shapes and influences quality health research for anyone whose professional role or interests include the management and quality of health research or the strategic development of health research across the NHS and wider health economy.

The HM Treasury Magenta Book provides guidance on what to consider when designing an evaluation.

HEE working across South London has worked in partnership with Kings College London to produce an evaluation practice toolkit – a tool to help healthcare education projects evaluate themselves rigorously in order to continuously improve. The toolkit was co-developed with a wide range of stakeholders across south London, including universities, healthcare colleagues and HEE staff, all of whom provided input at all stages from design through to implementation. The toolkit was formally launched in February 2018, and although initially developed for use in south London, it is already being used more widely. Two further toolkits are also in the pipeline, one on data collection and analysis and another on reporting and disseminating findings. View the toolkit.
