Research Ready

Research Ready

Practice set up

In order to participate in many research studies our Practice must demonstrate that we are ‘Research ready’.  The practice has completed an online self-accreditation questionnaire which covers the minimum requirements of The Research Governance Framework for health and social care, 2005.  The accreditation has been developed by the Royal College of General Practitioners in conjunction with the NIHR and the PCRN.

Benefits of being ‘Research ready’

  • Enables our practice to reflect on our ability and capacity to conduct high quality research
  • Provides assurance for study sponsors, governance staff and patients that our Practice is up-to-date and compliant with national standards for NHS research
  • Provides the practice with awareness of how it can minimise any potential risks for our practice, practice staff and study participants
  • Access to a Research Ready file which provides a useful reference for the research team and also for the induction and training of new staff in our practice who will be participating in its research activities
  • Opportunities to be involved in a wider range of research studies

Research Training

A key requirement for anyone involved in the conduct of clinical research is Good Clinical Practice (GCP) training.  GCP is the standard and guideline to which all NHS research is conducted.  

Why GCP training is essential
Everyone involved in the conduct of clinical research must have training to ensure they are best prepared to carry out their duties and responsibilities. This is laid down in the Research Governance Framework for Health and Social Care 2005, covering all research in the NHS in England, and in law for those people working on clinical trials.

The principles of GCP state that: Each individual involved in conducting a trial should be qualified by education, training and experience to perform his or her respective task(s). 2.8, E6 Guideline for Good Clinical Practice.
