The CEO's office requests that the following completed CEO Checklist be used when making contact with the CEO's office with a view to requesting his signature on research-related documentation, including contracts.

As you begin to complete the checklist and collate the relevant documentation, you will quickly notice that some of the documents required need to be obtained from internal hospital departments e.g.

  • Section 5 refers to a letter from the Hospital insurers
  • Section 7 requires a letter from the Hospital finance department

THESE INTERNAL HOSPITAL DEPARTMENTS SHOULD NOT BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY BY PERSONS EXTERNAL TO THE HOSPITAL

In order to obtain these documents, you must arrange for the on site contact person for the study (usually a consultant or research nurse) to liaise via email with two internal hospital departments.

  1. The Risk and Legal Services Department. (See template email here)
  2. The Finance Department (See template email here)

THESE INTERNAL HOSPITAL DEPARTMENTS SHOULD NOT BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY BY PERSONS EXTERNAL TO THE HOSPITAL

THE SITE SIGN OFF PROCESS typically takes 4 to 6 weeks in total, but can take longer. The longest part of the site sign off process is the first stage i.e. the Risk and Legal Stage, as it can take some time for the hospital insurers to assess the insurance and indemnity arrangements.
