The UK Department of Health’s code of practice for managing records has important implications for nurse researchers. Naomi Reay and Jill Firth consider the steps researchers need to take to comply with the code

This paper discusses the Records Management: NHS Code of Practice (Department of Health (DH) 2006) and describes how it affects the management of data in research. It focuses on the pragmatic implications of this latest guidance for the creation, storage, maintenance, disclosure and disposal of records in healthcare research.
