Access to CRIS requires either an NHS contract or a Research Passport
If you have an NHS contract that is not with Oxford Health please contact the HR department within your own Trust and ask them to prepare an NHS to NHS Proforma
Requests for access to CRIS should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Users are required to agree to the UK CRIS Terms and Conditions
prior to being granted access to CRIS.
Once your right to access CRIS has been approved you can register your CRIS project.
Registering a CRIS Project
To register your CRIS research project please download the research registration form
and email your completed application to email@example.com
. A member of the CRIS team will then contact you to establish the feasibility of your CRIS question. To assist you in determining your approach to interrogating the data we have produced a sample data plan which can be found here

for further information.
Once your project has passed feasibility your project will be formally registered on the CRIS system by a member of the CRIS team. Your project will then be submitted to the CRIS Oversight Group to seek their approval.
Access to the CRIS Secure Environment – UKSeRP
Access to the CRIS facility is via a secure private network on a research platform with UKSeRP. Once your right to access CRIS has been approved the CRIS Admin team will set up your UKSeRP user account. This will enable you to apply for a CRIS user account, access to the CRIS facility along with statistical analysis software and your project files.
Creating a CRIS User account
In addition to a UKSeRP user account, see above, a CRIS user account will also be required by all project lead CRIS researchers. This will enable the formal registration of your CRIS project to the CRIS system.
To obtain a CRIS user account, log on to UKSeRP and access CRIS via the UK-CRIS desktop icon. From the CRIS home screen select ‘Register
’ to submit a user application, which will be approved by a member of the CRIS Admin team. The CRIS Admin team will register your CRIS project once it has passed feasibility and you will automatically be added as a project user.
