The Academy of Medical Sciences publishes its report: A new pathway for the regulation and governance of health research

The NHS White Paper said the government would consider the legislation affecting medical research, and the bureaucracy that flows from it, and bring forward plans for radical simplification in light of the Academy’s review. Health Secretary for England, Andrew Lansley, said “National regulation and local governance of health research are too complex and scattered across too many different bodies. The Academy’s report makes the case for simplification under a health research agency that will streamline and co-ordinate regulatory and governance processes. The Government welcomes the report and will consider carefully how to implement its recommendations.”

The Academy’s full report is available here.
