If you're a HYMS researcher employed at either the University of Hull or the University of York, you can apply for an NHS Research Passport.
The passport system provides a common set of pre-engagement checks, including:
These checks conform to the standards required by all NHS organisations, and are therefore transferable across different Trusts. This can be useful if you intend to undertake research in the NHS, especially across multiple NHS organisations. Once you have a passport, it lasts for five years.
The responsibility for obtaining a passport rests with you, as an individual researcher. The HR department at your university must also countersign a section of the passport application to certify that the employment aspects of the pre-engagement checks have been carried out.
