Accelerated Access Review: Update

Original story:

Academic Health Science Networks are supporting the Accelerated Access Review (AAR).  This week the second phase of engagement kicked off with the AAR interim report.

The interim report sets out Sir Hugh’s emerging thinking on speeding up access to transformative health technology that can help change the lives of NHS patients.

It sets out 5 propositions:

  • putting the patient centre stage: patients should be given a stronger voice at every stage of the innovation pathway
  • getting ahead of the curve: a radically new approach is required to accelerate and manage entry into our health system for emerging products which promise the most significant, potentially transformative impact in terms of patient benefit and overall value
  • supporting all innovators: the end-to-end innovation pathway can, and should, be more responsive, particularly where this will contribute to better outcomes for patients and more efficient ways of delivering care
  • galvanising the NHS: the NHS must be an active partner in promoting innovation and must be incentivised to adopt new products and systems quickly and effectively
  • delivering change: building on existing structures the health innovation system needs to be streamlined at both local and national level
