Accelerated Access Review
The review was first announced in 2014. Its purpose was to look at improving access to innovative medicines and technologies across the NHS so that patients could benefit from new discoveries as quickly as possible.
We supported the review because its intentions closely aligned with our mission to improve health.
The recommendations set out in the review mark one of the first steps towards making sure that promising drugs, devices, diagnostics and digital products are adopted quickly across the NHS. This means that medical research, including Wellcome-funded projects, could reach patients and transform lives more quickly.
