Guidance for Researchers

All research studies conducted with NHS staff and/or patients as participants require registration with and acknowledgment by the Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust Research and Development Department. Please contact the R&D department on Tel: 01709 426063 or 01709 304177 or via email:

Where the Health Research Authority (HRA) Approval requires formal confirmation of “Capacity and Capability” by participating NHS organisations in England, the Research and Development Department will facilitate this process for you.

We pride ourselves on providing high quality efficient services to researchers and aim to meet the NIHR 70 day target (see national reporting for our performance to date)
