Research and Development office

The R&D office provides support to researchers in both the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience and the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM). It is committed to ensuring that all research being undertaken is of high scientific quality and of a high ethical standard.

SLaM Operational Capability Statement

The National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) has established the NIHR Research Support Services as a national framework for local health research management. The framework aims to standardise good practice within the NHS.

One element of this national framework is that each NHS trust involved in health research maintains an R&D Operational Capability Statement. The statement provides an overview of the organisation’s capabilities, and includes such factors as the types and numbers of studies the organisation is able to undertake, available resources, possible constraints that would make a study difficult to support, and key decision-makers in service departments. The SLaM R&D Operational Capability Statement is reviewed and agreed by the Trust Board on a regular basis.
