Ethical approval - Additional information

Where all sites are within the UK, and the National Research Ethics Service is used, a single ethics committee review would be carried out. Where sites span countries, approval from a UK committee would be required.

For multicentre projects which do not require national ethics review, institutional approval would be sought at each site from the local ethics committee.
