Support for researchers

Any research we conduct which involves our patients, staff and/or facilities must have formal approval from C&I's Research & Development (R&D) department before it can go ahead. Our (R&D) department is called Noclor Research Support.
Ensuring the safety of our patients and that the highest ethical standards are maintained means we:
  • Safeguard participants in research
  • Protect researchers/investigators (by providing a clear framework to work within)
  • Enhance ethical and scientific quality
  • Minimise risk
  • Monitor practice and performance
  • Promote good practice and ensure lessons are learned.

In addition to the six points above there are many more requirements which we must fulfil to ensure safe research. Detailed information on this can be found on the Noclor website.

Training for research staff

The R&D department offer free training in the following subjects:

  • Good Clinical Practice in Research
  • Informed Consent in Clinical Research
  • Literature Searching
  • Critical Appraisal Skills in Qualitative and Quantitative Research
