HSJ Life Sciences Forum
The HSJ Life Sciences Forum, now in its second year, is a unique event designed to facilitate collaboration and joint-working between the NHS and industry.
There is a vision for the Life Sciences industry in the UK to be a global hub for clinical research and medical innovation. For this strategy to succeed, collaboration across industry and the NHS is vital to support transformation.
The NHS must build on the Accelerated Access Review and embrace cost-effective innovations for patients.
The HSJ Life Sciences Forum has been established to stimulate future collaboration between industry and the NHS, foster innovation and tackle the barriers that prevent the relationship realising its full potential.
Key themes will be addressed such as the sharing of data with industry, genomics and innovative trials. All major stakeholders will be present at the forum to drive forward the industrial strategy and contribute towards improving outcomes for patients.
I had the opportunity to meet with key NHS suppliers under the umbrella of ABHI where we opened a dialogue about service quality, innovation and value management.Lord Carter of Coles (Patrick Carter) (Chair of NHS Procurement and Efficiency Board )
