Advise service costs/feasibility
As part of the feasibility study, the departments listed below will consider their possible involvement. The CI/PI should provide whatever information is necessary, such as an outline protocol, to enable an accurate to be made, taking into account:
- Availability of any specialised diagnostic or therapeutic equipment required by the protocol
- Adequate space and storage conditions (including archive)
- Available resources in NHS support departments
Where collaborations are formalised with legal agreements (eg material transfer agreement, confidentiality agreement, this should be flagged up at the earliest opportunity.
See below for a list of support service teams and departments.
