Government announces £86m for innovative medicines

James O'Shaughnessy, a junior health minister, announced the funding and promised to protect the life sciences during Brexit.

O’Shaughnessy said that the government would support and promote UK life sciences in Brexit negotiations with the European Union in a speech delivered on 14 July.

He said that the UK is a “scientific, regulatory and industrial centre of excellence”, and outlined three principles that he said should underpin any future relationship with the EU: patients must never be disadvantaged; the UK will continue to play a leading role promoting and ensuring public health, both in Europe and around the world; and industry must be able to get products into the UK market as quickly and simply as possible, with the UK and Europe at the forefront of medical innovation.
