Together we can:
We are contributing to the NHS England consultation on the NHS Ten Year Plan to help make this vision a reality. In doing so, we are building on thriving agreements already in place between our industry, the NHS and other system partners:
We are also supporting Health Data Research UK and the NHS in the establishment of digital innovation hubs that will improve the speed and efficiency of clinical studies, and allow the evaluation of innovative treatments on care pathways, as recommended in the Life Sciences Industrial Strategy.
We understand the importance of promoting careers in life sciences, as they benefit not just industry, but academia and the NHS. To inform development of our work on careers and skills needs, we draw on our biennial skills gap analysis, our most recent report being Bridging the Skills Gap. We are also a founding member of the Clinical Pharmacology Skills Alliance, which aims to develop and support a long-term, cross-sector action plan for clinical pharmacology.
The UK Life Sciences Industrial Strategy should be required reading for every healthcare leader in the UK. It makes clear that the NHS must be an active participant with industry in delivering the shared objective of outstanding patient outcomes.
This guidance has been developed by the AHSN Network and the ABPI. It sets out governance and process recommendations to enable Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) rapidly and confidently to develop collaborations with industry partners to address local health needs.
