Government aims to accelerate medical innovation

The government’s Accelerated Access Collaborative is set to become the umbrella organisation for health innovation, in an effort to speed up the adoption of new medical treatments.

The AAC was established last year in response for calls for fast-tracked access to innovations in the National Health Service. The Department of Health and Social Care’s announcement on 2 May means that the AAC will now play a bigger role in helping innovators create the best possible products and get them adopted quickly by the NHS.

The former director of innovation, research and life sciences in the NHS, Sam Roberts, has been appointed chief executive of the AAC.
