Doing research safely

Doing research safely during coronavirus #

We have a responsibility to keep ourselves and our participants safe and comply with government guidance during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. In particular, we should carefully consider whether and how to do any face to face research.

For now, you will need the approval of a Director, Head or Principal Researcher to do face to face research. And you must document your decision and your assessment of the risks in your research plan.

The Service Manual has a guide to choosing face to face or remote research, and what to include when you document your decision and your assessment of the risks.
