The trust is keen to encourage educational research to help us
understand and share good practise. All educational research
activity should be registered centrally to allow us to be aware of
projects and to share with the relevant local teams.

you should not start your project until formal approval is
Projects that are true research project will need to be

Please also complete the project proposal
form. We would normally inform the medical
school/HEENE/the trust about research projects taking place.
For audit and evaluation projects, you still need to complete
the educational project proposal
form but can start work on your project.
For support with projects or for any questions, please contact
