BIA submission to NHS England's consultation on clinical research

The BIA has responded to NHS England’s consultation on clinical research. 

In our submission, we highlighted:

  • The UK's strong reputation for supporting innovative clinical development 
  • NHS contracting mechanisms are often too bureaucratic, lengthy, and inconsistent
  • The importance of making it quick and seamless to set-up clinical studies 

NHS England's consultation covered changes to simplify arrangements for research in the NHS and associated changes to the terms of the NHS Standard Contract.
