About St Vincent's Hospital Melbourne, Research Valet® Service

The recently introduced Research Valet service at St Vincent’s Hospital Melbourne (SVHM) was developed to improve support for sponsors, researchers and companies in preparing and working through the SVHM research submission and approval process.

The Research Directorate aims to make SVHM a premier and preferred site to conduct sponsored clinical trials across a broad range of clinical disciplines. The Research Valet® Service includes full HREC submission preparation and liaison throughout the submission and approval process. Sponsors or researchers will receive final outcome within 30 days of HREC meeting and governance approvals will be targeted at seven days after submission of all required documentation. The service provides researchers a smooth start up with a highly competitive timeline to gain ethics approval.
