How to run a study on MHRN Cymru

How do I get my study on to the MHRNC Portfolio?

You will need to complete and submit an MHRN-C study feasibility form. We use this to assess whether a study is eligible for the portfolio, therefore please complete all fields as fully as possible. Once the PDF form has been completed this should be submitted with a copy of the study protocol to the MHRN-Coordinator Helen Daniels (H.Daniels@swansea.ac.uk) or by post.

The Coordinator will also answer any queries you may have regarding the study adoption process.

What happens next?

The portfolio & Adoptions Researcher will check the application for any missing information or anomalies and once checked, forward the completed application and protocol to the portfolio adoptions panel. The panel will assess the suitability of the study for the portfolio using a pre-defined scoring system.

The panel will have two weeks to decide whether the study will be adopted. During this time if there are any queries or further information is required, this will be requested from the applicant.

After two weeks the study Chief Investigator or Coordinator will receive a formal response from the portfolio adoptions panel. This will be sent via letter authorised by the Network Director. We will request to see further documents in support of the study including any consent forms, patient information sheets, confirmation of ethics approval and sponsorship.

Once received the Portfolio & Adoptions Researcher will add the study to the MHRN-C portfolio and generate a project reference number. If eligible the study will also be added to the NISCHR CRC and NIHR portfolios. This process may take several days.
