Join us on July 17th at IQVIA’s London Offices, for a keynote speech by Sir John Bell and the launch of our Brexit White Paper, Just What the Doctor Ordered: an analysis of the UK Life Sciences Industrial Strategy (LSIS) and Sector Deal in the context of the UK’s withdrawal from the European Union.


Whilst Brexit presents significant uncertainty, it also provides the UK with an opportunity to become a global leader in clinical research, Real-World Evidence (RWE) and accelerated uptake of innovative medicines, through the implementation of recommendations of the Life Sciences Industrial Strategy (LSIS) and Sector Deal.

An expert life sciences panel chaired by the Rt. Hon Stephen Dorrell (Chair of the NHS Confederation, former Secretary of State for Health, Chair of PPP), including Professor Sir John Bell (Regius Professor of Medicine, University of Oxford), Steve Bates, Chief Executive Officer, BIA, Tamsin Berry, Deputy Director, Office for Life Sciences, as well as industry and NHS panellists, will discuss the White Paper recommendations and:

  • The implications of Brexit on the UK as an attractive place for global pharma and biotech to continue inward investment
  • How the UK can realise the LSIS and Sector Deal ambition for the UK to be in the top quartile of comparator countries for the speed of adoption and uptake of cost effective medicines
  • How the LSIS might enhance the UK’s unique and rich health data ecosystem to improve patient outcomes and make the UK the global hub for RWE research
  • Whether the LSIS and Sector Deal mark a new dawn for improved collaboration between the NHS, pharmaceutical and biotech industries, for the benefit of patients, on the NHS’s 70th birthday
