Any research involving NHS staff, patients or NHS premises or facilities will require full ethical review by an NHS Research Ethics Committee (REC). An IRAS application should be completed and submitted to the Faculty Research Office for sponsorship review and sign-off prior to submitting to an NHS REC.
Quality of applications
The Faculty Research Office will return applications that require significant revision to both the applicant, supervisor, if appropriate and the Dental Research Ethics Committee (DREC) Chair to ensure appropriate academic support and oversight is provided.
