£86m boost for new medicine and technology

The government has announced new funding of up to £86 million for UK firms to develop medical breakthroughs

Following the announcement, Academy president Professor Sir Robert Lechler PMedSci said;

“The UK is a world leader in innovative medical research and developing new technologies to improve lives. I am pleased to see the Government investing in our ability to increase the uptake and adoption of innovation in the NHS to allow patients faster access to new technologies.

This funding recognises the important role that Academic Health Science Networks can play in this process. The establishment of a Digital Health Technology Catalyst is an important step to enhance our ability to find digital solutions to the needs of the NHS. I look forward to seeing the Government’s full response to the accelerated Access Review in due course.”
