Information for researchers


We work with researchers who want to conduct research, clinical trials or systematic reviews at Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

Research is essential to the successful promotion and protection of health and well-being and also to modern, effective health and social care services. At the same time research can involve an element of risk, both in terms of return on investment and sometimes for the safety and well-being of the participants.

We can help you by providing detailed information on all aspects of research, from the initial conceptual stage right up to study completion and publishing.

Support for researchers

We are here to support your research proposal and help to develop it into a feasible study.

  • We will help with funding applications, using our experience and liaising with the relevant departments, to provide a valid application.
  • We will arrange for research passports, honorary research contracts and letters of access where needed for external researchers to use our facilities.
  • We have templates for writing a protocol for the study, as well as for CVs, information sheets and consent/assent forms.
  • We are experienced with IRAS and will organise ethics, regulatory meetings and help collate the application and supporting documents to gain approvals.
  • Once the study is approved at our site and has commenced, any amendments you need to make can be arranged through us.
  • During the study, we also undertake monitoring, audits and inspections, to make sure everything is running to plan and within the regulations.
