 Chair’s overview of the past year:


 No more than 1 side of A4, ½ a side is adequate

 I am delighted to provide a foreword to the Annual Report for the period covering
 1 April 2006 – 31 March 2007 and for what is my third year as Chair of HPSS REC 2.
 As in previous years the Annual Report provides a summary of decisions made by the Committee and the titles of
 research applications submitted. Although the Committee does not have performance targets, each application is
 judged on its individual merits, it is pleasing that the number of unfavourable opinions reduced from 7 (8.3%) in 05/06
 to 4(4.5%) in 06/07. It was also pleasing that no studies exceeded the 60 day time limit this year down from 6% of the
 total number of studies in 05/06. In recording the studies submitted for ethical approval the Annual Report of HPSS
 REC 2 (in common with HPSS REC1 and REC3) provides a record of the very active research community that exists
 in NI, one that we should all regard with pride and gratitude. The REC process does provide a safeguard for research
 participants in an increasingly regulated research environment but the need for high quality research to continue to be
 undertaken is one that we all recognise.

 As in previous years I wish to thank Committee members for bringing their wealth and diversity of experience to the
 ethical process. I wish to acknowledge the challenge and reward of ethically reviewing Health and Social Care research
 applications and thank the Vice Chair, Dr. Ronnie Atkinson, the alternate Vice Chair Dr. Donna Fitzsimmons and
 Administrator Katrina Walls for their support.
