The Academy is hosting a roundtable, organised jointly with the National Institute for Health Research and NHS England, to seek the patient perspective on enabling research in the NHS.
This meeting will inform the Academy’s current project seeking to develop a vision for how the
interface between academia and the NHS can be enhanced to accelerate the translation of
research into patient benefit and population health, and to increase the appeal of the UK to the
life sciences industry.
The meeting will be chaired by Professor Dame Jessica Corner FMedSci and will bring
together patient advocates and leaders to:
- Explore the opportunities for and challenges to research in the NHS from the patient
- Identify best practice examples and understand how these could be implemented more
- Consider the next steps needed to place patients at the heart of research in the NHS.
- Seek the patient perspective to inform the Academy’s vision to enhance the NHS-academia
