We are delighted to announce that Matt Westmore, Chief Executive of the Health Research Authority (HRA), will be giving an online seminar on Wednesday 9th February 2022 at 12:45 – 13:45, as part of our Executive Group Communications series.

Matt’s talk will include an overview of the HRA’s work, and will cover the following:

  • Effective navigation of research approvals in the UK
  • The blurred line in health services research between service improvement and research
  • Myth busting: resolving some misunderstandings about what the HRA does and doesn’t need to review
  • Existing plans for further streamlining of the system, and potential areas for improvement

The talk will be followed by an opportunity for questions and discussion.

The seminar will be hosted on Microsoft Teams; joining instructions will be circulated following registration.
