The HRA will be considering the expansion of this certification across functions. The HRA has established an Audit and Risk Management Committee, which meets quarterly to scrutinise audit services, risk management policy and activity, financial planning and management and reporting.
This will be Protecting and promoting the interests of patients and the public in health research Page 21 HRA Business Plan alongside the continued ethics officer pilot to improve favourable opinion rates and reduce the administrative burden for researchers, reduce timelines and improve predictability of timelines, which we health research authority business plan is a key factor in improving the environment for research in the UK.

The HRA has established a Collaboration and Development Steering Group to support UK implementation of projects, where the HRA will lead work that it and others will need to respond to, so together we achieve an ambition to make it easier to do good quality research in the UK.

We look forward to working with the Health Research Authority as they develop their plans to implement the single approval system, building on the great work that we, and others, have already done to speed-up the process of setting up a clinical research study in the NHS.The Authority is committed to this vision by ensuring that all health research involving human participants is based on good science, meets ethical standards.
The NHS England Research plan is the first step in setting out NHS business plan priorities. • Work in partnership with DH and the Health Research Authority to create a more fertile environment for clinical trials by enhancing the Health Research Authority, harmonising approval and recruitment.
