Research Management and Governance (RM&G)

A research management service is provided for NHS Swindon by staff in the Pan-Bath & Swindon Primary Care Research Consortium, School for Heath and University of Bath (PBSPCRC).
All health research studies taking place in the NHS Swindon population require research governance approval, so that the interests of our patients, staff and organisation are safeguarded. The research governance process is managed for NHS Swindon by staff in the pan-Bath and Swindon Primary Care Research Consortium.
