College Research Ethics Committee
The remit of the College of Human and Health Sciences (CHHS) Research Ethics Committee (REC) is as follows:
CHHS Students: To ethically review all *research on human participants and/or data which is not publicly available. (When conducting research outside the UK, ethical permission should be sought locally as well as through the College ethics committee).
*In respect of students, the term ‘research’ is given a broader definition to encompass service evaluation, where this concerns human participants.
CHHS Staff: To provide ethical review for research on human participants and/or data which is not publicly available when no other system for formal ethical review is available.
- Research by staff which requires NHS research ethics scrutiny
- Research where no human subjects or personal data are accessed (such as a review of literature)
- Research using publicly available data.
- Personal reflective practice based work.
