Accelerated Access Review: interim report

Sir Hugh Taylor sets out 5 propositions to speed up access to transformative health technology that can change the lives of NHS patients.



The interim report describes the review’s progress in preparing proposals to improve the current system for developing, evaluating and adopting innovative medical technology for the benefit of patients, the health system and the life sciences industry.

Building on extensive responses from stakeholders during an initial period of engagement, which is summarised in the supporting evidence documents, the report sets out 5 main propositions which will form the basis of the review’s next phase of engagement.

The review intends to publish its final report with more detailed recommendations by April 2016.
