NHS Research Scotland Permissions Coordinating Centre

Welcome Performance

NRS Permissions CC manages the process of obtaining R&D NHS management permission for multicentre research projects in Scotland, commercial and non-commercial.

We also facilitate feasibility assessments on behalf of commercial companies. We recommend companies looking for sites in Scotland trial our free feasibility service and see how we perform.

As a single and centralised point of contact for researchers and companies wishing to conduct multicentre clinical research in Scotland, NRS Permissions CC liaises directly with NHS Board R&D offices to help streamline the Scottish R&D permissions process.

If you represent a commercial company, visit our dedicated 'Commercial' tab.

The National Coordinator is visiting companies to present to staff on site, the R&D feasibility and permission processes in Scotland and to allow opportunity for discussion face to face. If you are a company interested to take us up on this offer, please get in touch.
