Government gets the message on research in NHS reforms

From the NIHR website today following the Government’s response to yesterday’s publication of the NHS Future Forum conclusions.

A real result as far as I can see with regard to excess treatment costs as well as the strengthening of the duties and responsibilities to promote research in different parts of the NHS structure. Very good news indeed and congratulations to all the good work by AMRC and others on this.

For the usual thorough and sharp analysis of all the announcements in full, go to Becky’s Policy Pages.

The prospect of the legislation going back to committee gives us a real opportunity to press on the very vexed issue of how we ensure research is driven as an activity at a local level.
