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.
