Local Authorities are required by the Department of Health to have in place a rigorous and effective system that ensures all social care research carried out is reviewed independently to meet a number of standards.
Research Governance is about good practice in research and consultation
Any individual or organisation, who wishes to carry out research in Westminster involving users or staff of Social Care Services, must follow the local Research Governance requirements. The approval process takes into consideration the degree of risk associated with the research proposal.
These pages aim to guide you through the process, and signpost you to sources of advice and information. If after reviewing the information available, you need any further advice, please contact: email@example.com
