Developing your proposal

Developing your proposal

We can help you to develop a research idea into a robust research proposal by providing expert protocol development advice, and by sign-posting you to relevant partners.

 Our Statisticians and Trials Managers can help with:

  • Study methodology and design, sample size calculations and statistical tests.
  • Liaising with any research support services required as part of your study, such as pharmacy, radiology etc.
  • Advice and support with funding applications, sign-posting to relevant funding grants.
  • Trial Management – manage studies and support researchers through-out the study lifecycle such as:
  1. Being responsible for the management and governance of clinical trials and other research studies within the Trust and ensuring that they are in compliance with UK and EU legislation related to clinical trials and clinical research.
  2. Providing advice and support when there are:


  • issues of recruitment
  • changes to the study
  • personnel changes
  • monitoring visits by regulatory bodies or sponsors
