In response to the 2023 Spring Budget, Nicola Perrin, Chief Executive of the Association of Medical Research Charities (AMRC) said: "It’s positive to see the Chancellor, in today’s budget, recognising the importance of speeding up patient access to treatments, while maintaining robust safety standards. We welcome the announcement of additional resource for MHRA to develop a sustainable approach. It is vital that patients are able to access innovative new treatments quickly and safely. We look forward to seeing further details."

In response to the publication of Sir Patrick Vallance’s review on pro-innovation regulation for digital technologies Nicola said: "We're pleased to see the publication of the Vallance Review, as digital technologies have significant applications to research and improving patient outcomes. However, its recommendations must be implemented with public trust and data security at the heart of any decisions about access and linkage of public data.”
