Information for researchers

This section aims to provide researchers with guidance and support to conduct ethical high-quality research in the Trust whilst guaranteeing the safety and well-being of its services users.

The R&D office is available to help throughout the research cycle from grant applications and ethics, through to R&D Approval for CPFT as a research site. If you click on the different sections of the process map it will give you more detail about each step.

Both teams can offer support to researchers and health professionals to deliver their NIHR adopted portfolio studies. For further information please contact your local team: or
