Standard Operating Procedures and Guidance


From 1st April 2012 these SOPs and Guidance documents apply only to York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and (in relation to clinical trials of investigational medicinal products) the University of York.  For further information on this change see the "News" Section of this website.

A number of minor changes are necessary to reflect the position after 1st April 2012.  These changes will be made within each document as it comes up for review.  Until this work has been completed please download the list of amendments here - amendments to SOPs 

This section contains the Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and Guidance documents issued by the R&D Unit. All York Foundation Trust R&D Unit SOPs or Guidance documents should be used online, not in printed form.  Always check that you are using the most recent version.

When a new SOP is authorised, or when an existing SOP is revised, self directed training must be carried out by all staff to whom the SOP is relevant and this training documented in a training record. If you require assistance with SOP training please contact the R&D Unit SOP Controller(link to e-mail address below).

The SOP Controller will endeavour to notify staff that a new or revised document has been approved for implementation. However, investigators should visit this page regularly to ensure that they are aware of and working to the latest SOPs and guidance documents relevant to their research. If you wish to have your name added to the email alert system for SOP updates then please contact the SOP Controller.

The SOP Controller is Sarah Sheath.
