Affordable, quality health care. For everyone.

Lord Darzi Appointed Chair of Accelerated Access Collaborative in U.K.

Lord Ara Darzi, a former Minister in the Department of Health and Social Care, was appointed chair of the Accelerated Access Collaborative. Bringing together leaders from the NHS, industry, and government, the collaborative seeks to identify transformative medical innovations and accelerate their clinical development and NHS approval. As a result, products for the treatment of diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and dementia may be available on the NHS up to four years earlier. Lord Darzi stated that giving patients faster access to “cost-effective, transformative treatments on the NHS” will both improve health and benefit the British economy by creating jobs.
