Level 1 access to our Research Ready accredited pharmacies to support the delivery of research.
Pre award (i.e. before an application for funding has been made or when a project is in the planning stages). Those seeking Level 2 Research Support for access to Research Ready pharmacies should, where possible, approach the RPS during the project development stage.
Researchers should approach the RPS as soon as possible, with a minimum of 4 weeks prior to the funding application deadline, with details of the study aim, objectives, timetable, outline methodology, details of the funding opportunity and support sought from the RPS.
The RPS Research and Evaluation Team will review the request and ensure the study meets the eligibility criteria.
If RPS support is confirmed, the details regarding access to RPS membership will need to be reviewed and agreed with the RPS Membership and Marketing team. Details needed from the researchers include:
- Route of access – posting to RPS networks, email , LPF circulation;
- Dates that access to membership will be required – e.g. date range that email will be sent;
- Draft of the content to be communicated/disseminated.
RPS Members will be ed based on interest, career stage, region and sector as appropriate.
Post award (i.e. once a project is ongoing). The RPS reserves the right to prioritise projects that have sought support at the pre-award stages where dissemination time conflicts arise.
