Procedures and forms

We have a suite of procedures and forms available on the NHS Blood and Transplant (NHSBT) controlled document system which are used to ensure good clinical practice and regulatory compliance in the conduct of the clinical trials, and consistency of working across trials. NHSBT employees may access these documents via the controlled document library. Collaborators from outside NHSBT may request copies of any of our procedures or forms by emailing with their request.
