Innovation in the NHS: Accelerated Access Review Interim Report (NHS England / Department of Health / AAR)

Summary

The Accelerated Access Review: Interim Report (AAR) explores innovation within the NHS in terms of accelerated access of drugs, devices, diagnostics and digital health products.

There are said to be five emerging themes:

Proposition One: Putting the patient centre stage. Patients must be at the centre of healthcare innovation, and need a stronger representative voice.

Proposition Two: Getting ahead of the curve. NHS financial sustainability will depend on harnessing cost-effective innovation.

Proposition Three: Supporting all innovators. Innovators need to be supported, as with the NHS Integrated Clinician Entrepreneur Training Scheme.

Proposition Four: Galvanising the NHS. The NHS should actively promote innovation, with incentives for adopting new products, services and systems. Alignment with the NHS Five Year Forward View’s key programmes such as New Models of Care and Test Bed sites etc. seems to be important.

Proposition Five: Delivering change. Collaborative working and integration of health and care will be vital, to pull things together.
