Legal Team

 

TASC Legal advises senior management in the College of Medicine and NHS Tayside Board on legal and contractual matters relating to clinical research.

TASC and AHSP

The Legal team supported the successful development of TASC by drafting written arrangements setting out the innovative TASC structure, including the TASC Executive and the joint TASC Board. Agreements were put in place to establish joint governance structures between the University and NHS Tayside. In June 2014 written arrangements establishing the Academic Health Science Partnership in Tayside (AHSP) were drafted by TASC Legal.

Legal Support for Studies

The Legal team provides advice and support services during the set up and conduct phases of clinical trials and clinical research studies sponsored or hosted in Tayside. The unit works closely with University and NHS Tayside investigators. Within the TASC office, the unit works closely with the commercial business team, the non-commercial approvals team, the governance team and the Clinical Trials Unit.

Regional & National Development

TASC Legal leads the development of the East of Scotland collaboration, documenting links with NHS Fife & Forth Valley and the Universities of Stirling and St. Andrews.

At national level, TASC Legal makes representations to the Chief Scientists Office in relation to clinical research matters such as model agreements for streamlining business practice. The team links with other Scottish HEI’s and NHS Boards with the aim to bring about improvements to the contracts management process for clinical research. TASC Legal supported the establishment of Health Science Scotland and the Stratified Medicines Scotland Innovation Centre, a unique facility for the Scottish research community with a mission to find the right drug for the right patient at the right time.
