Research wins critical acclaim in NHS 10-year plan

The critical importance of research and innovation in driving medical advances has been recognised in the NHS Long-Term Plan, with a commitment to enhancing the benefits these bring both to patients and the UK economy. Under the 10-year plan, announced in January this year, research investment is set to double for the period 2015 to 2020, with £300 million of government support. Patients benefit enormously from research and innovation, with breakthroughs enabling prevention of ill-health, earlier diagnosis, more effective treatments, better outcomes, and faster recovery. Research and innovation are also important for the UK economy, bringing jobs and services. Along with measures to prevent 150,000 heart attacks, strokes and dementia cases, the aim is to increase the number of people registering to participate in health research to one million by 2023/24. People will be able to view opportunities to participate and register interest on the NHS App by 2020.
