The NHS chief executive will publish his report alongside the Autumn Life Science Package shortly on how the adoption and diffusion of innovations can be accelerated across the national health service. The scope of the review covers the spread of innovative technologies, medicines, devices, diagnostics and care pathways. The review will inform the strategic approach to innovation in the modernised NHS. This could include actions for Government, the Department of Health, industry, the National Commissioning Board, the NHS and other sectors.
