Appendix 2: Sample copy of HRA Ethical Review Form
Ethical Review Form (Lead Reviewer/REC Member)
The HRA has an established role to promote transparency, largely through RECs and the publication of research summaries
The lead reviewer(s) should complete this form in preparation for the REC meeting. The form may also be used by other REC members. The REC Chair should use the headings as an aide memoire to structure the discussion at the meeting. If paper copies of this form are completed, they should be given to the REC Manager who will arrange for them to be destroyed once the minutes of the meeting have been ratified.
