Abstract: The process of obtaining ethical permission for medical research is particularly complex in multicentre studies. This article explores the experience of seeking approval for a mixed-method study of children's palliative care in the UK. The study recruited participants through the NHS (nurses and consultants) and third sector (hospice staff and families). The stringent checks and balances that are discussed here apply to any medical research, and can reassure all interested parties of consistently high ethical standards.
