Research and Development Operational Capability Statement
As part of the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) Research Support Services Programme, each NHS organisation is required to publish a Research and Development Operational Capability Statement.
This Statement provides a Board level approved operational framework which sets out how the organisation plans to meet its research related responsibilities/requirements as stated in the Research Governance Framework, Clinical Trials Regulations, Operating Framework for the NHS in England, Handbook to the NHS Constitution and other relevant guidance and regulations.
The statement also provides researchers with an operational overview of resources available to support Research & Development in the organisation and an overview of research collaborations and partnerships with other organisations, including areas of special interest. The statement is a tool to improve effectiveness and collaborations in research activities.
