A rest is as good as a change…

Welcome

Thanks for visiting my blog. I am Chair of INVOLVE - the UK's national advisory group on public involvement - and NIHR National Director for Public Participation and Engagement in Research. I was CEO at the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) from 2006 until 2011. My full profile can be found on the 'Biography' page. The views on here are all personal ones unless otherwise stated. I hope you enjoy some of the things I write and/or find a useful link or two along the way.

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.
