Research Management & Governance

What is Research Management and Governance (RM&G)?

RM&G is the broad term used to describe the range of regulations, principles and processes that, together, ensure that the NHS, Researchers, Staff and Patients can be confident that all Health Care research involving the NHS is of high quality.

RM&G includes Research Governance which applies to the process that all Research and Service Evaluation projects must complete to gain R&D Governance Approval from the Trust hosting the project in question.


Who does RM&G apply to?

RM&G is relevant to anyone undertaking research within any of the Gloucestershire R&D Consortium Trusts.

However locally, the principles are also applied to Service Evaluation Projects and Staff Surveys to ensure high standard across all activity.
