In this chapter, we discuss the role of the Administrative Limb of the RRS. Specifically, we outline why an administrative limb is needed, what its goals should be, its various components, and finally, the importance of senior hospital medical and nursing administration in ensuring successful RRS implementation and maintenance. The need to link audit activities of the RRT to research projects, quality improvement and clinical governance is also emphasized. The structure, members and roles of the administrative arm at our hospital are used as an example.
