Radiation Assurance reviewer recruitment open


The Health Research Authority (HRA) recently announced that Radiation Assurance will become the way all research studies involving ionising radiation in the NHS/HSC get their MPE and CRE reviews completed. This is part of the development of IRAS, where we are creating an ionising radiation module that will standardise the approval process and streamline study set-up and management.

In preparation for the future release of the module, from 1 November 2021 we will be accepting all studies involving ionising radiation taking place in an NHS/HSC setting through the Radiation Assurance process.

We have begun further recruitment of MPEs and CREs and communications are being sent out to inform the research community that we are recruiting in preparation for the implementation of the ionising radiation module.
