SOPs and Guidance

Standard Operating Procedures and Guidance

This section contains the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Guidance documents issued by the R&D Unit.

All SOPs or Guidance documents should be used online, not in printed form.  Always check that you are using the most recent version.

When a new SOP is authorised, or when an existing SOP is revised, self directed training must be carried out by all staff to whom the SOP is relevant prior to the implementation date of the new document.  If you require assistance with SOP training please contact the R&D Unit SOP Controller.

The SOP Controller will endeavour to notify staff that a new or revised document has been approved for implementation via Q-Pulse. However, investigators should visit this page regularly to ensure that they are aware of and working to the latest SOPs and guidance documents relevant to their research.

Trust staff wishing to be added to the Q-Pulse system for SOP updates should contact the SOP Controller.

The SOP Controller is Sarah Sheath.
