New explainer video on combined review

26 July 2022

A short, animated video from the Health Research Authority outlines how to apply for combined review.

It is aimed at applicants and research teams involved in making applications for clinical trials of medicines or combined medicine/device studies.

Combined review – in place since January 2022 – is where investigators submit one application for both Clinical Trial Authorisation and Research Ethics Committee opinion. It is designed to reduce study set up times and offer a single application route.
