Health research involving patients should be ethically reviewed and approved. Your local Research Design Service, or Research and Development department, should be able to help you understand if ethical approval is required.

Health Research Authority

A number of useful resources have been created by The Health Research Authority including a Do I Need Ethics Decision Tool. The details of the study you are planning will then be reviewed by the committee. For more information, read about the research review process.
