UPDATE – so here is the BBC report on Lansley’s statement this afternoon. The ‘natural break’ in proceedings would seem an opportune moment for AMRC and senior leaders across clinical research to press to meet with Ministers and discuss some of the reforms that would help the legislation be a force for good for research. Watch this space.
..Or so my doctor tells me. The Guardian is reporting that the Health Secretary is due to talk to MPs today about a ’3 month’ pause in the passage of the Health and Social Care Bill to give more time to bring the community (i.e. everyone) on side. Will post thoughts here later when more is known.
